Supporting Every Child: School Counselors' Perceptions of Juvenile Sex Offenders in Schools
Morgan, Leann Wyrick; McClendon, Levi S.; McCarty, Jenna; Zinck, Kirk
Journal of School Counseling, v14 n1 2016
Researchers explored the attitudes and concerns of professional school counselors in their roles in working with juvenile sex offenders (JSOs) who attend school. Little empirical data exist regarding school counselors' roles in effectively engaging and supporting JSOs toward school success. Focus groups contributed to the consensual qualitative research (CQR) methodology, providing a framework for investigating concerns, experiences, attitudes, and beliefs related to juvenile sex offenders and school climate. The authors present findings of five systematic themes and the implications for school counselor best practice.
