Critical Incidents in the Development of Supportive Principals: Facilitating School Counselor-Principal Relationships
Dollarhide, Colette T.; Smith, Alexanderia T.; Lemberger, Matthew E.
Professional School Counseling, v10 n4 p360-369 Apr 2007
The qualitative study in this article explores critical incidents that may facilitate the support a principal provides for a school counseling program. Through structured interviews, supportive principals are asked to reflect on their prior experiences with school counselors, their educational exposure to school counseling, and their recommendations for school counselors. Results suggest that by demonstrating effective leadership and systemic interactions, school counselors can foster relationships with principals that can help them expand their roles and their programs.
