School Counselors' Attitudes Regarding Statewide Comprehensive Developmental Guidance Model Implementation
Poynton, Timothy A.; Schumacher, Rebecca A.; Wilczenski, Felicia L.
Professional School Counseling, v11 n6 p417-422 Aug 2008
The pilot study in this article identified facilitators and barriers to implementing the Massachusetts Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs. The Concerns-Based Adoption Model served as a framework to understand how school counselors perceive the Massachusetts Model's impact on their professional roles, and how those perceptions indicate varying levels of adoption of the model. The majority of respondents indicated that their concerns were "personal," such as how the model will change their day-to-day lives and how working under the new model is different from their current roles as school counselors. Results of this study suggest directions for professional development regarding state and ASCA National Model[R] implementation. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
