Gallo, Laura L.
Professional School Counseling, v20 n1 p14-24 2016-2017
To better understand school counselors' experiences related to students' use of social media, the authors conducted a qualitative study, utilizing a phenomenological approach, with eight practicing high school counselors. Three major themes emerged from the study: "the digital cultural divide," "frustration and fear," and "embracing change." This article presents implications for school counseling practice and research.
