Steps toward Understanding: Teacher Perceptions of the School Counselor Role
Powers, Priscilla; Boes, Susan R.
Georgia School Counselors Association Journal, v20 n1 Nov 2013
Successful school counselors have many stakeholders supporting their comprehensive program. Classroom teachers are vital members of the counseling team, so it becomes essential to periodically review their perceptions of the school counseling program and the role of the professional school counselor (PSC). In recent years, school counselors have experienced much change within the field. Many of these changes are due to the implementation of the American School Counselor Association's (ASCA) national model, the Transforming School Counseling Initiative, the No Child Left Behind Act, the College and Career Readiness Index (CCRPI), and other national and state programs. Additionally, ASCA (2004) redefined the role of the PSC. Examining teachers' perceptions of PSCs may be helpful for understanding teachers' support for the ASCA supported PSC role. This action research study was conducted as a review of one school counseling program by teachers and staff.
