Establishing Best Practice in School Counselling via Collaborative Leadership in the Counsellor-School Administrator Dyad
Reavie, Michael S.
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n174 Dec 2015
School counselling services in Canada are inconsistent due to differing provincial guidelines. The lack of a national school counselling model and inconsistent provincial guidelines results in limited awareness of best practice and inconsistent services for students. Administrators and school counsellors have differing perspectives related to the counsellors' appropriate work role, service delivery, and priority duties. This discrepancy results in challenges with inter-professional collaboration, shared leadership, and counsellor supervision. Recommendations for establishment of a school-counselling model, improved administrator-counsellor professional development, appropriate supervision, and increased administrator-counsellor collaboration are provided.
