Factors Affecting the Involvement of Teachers in Guidance and Counselling as a Whole-School Approach
Lam, Sarah K. Y.; Hui, Eadaoin K. P.
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v38 n2 p219-234 May 2010
This study explores factors affecting the involvement of regular secondary school teachers in the whole-school approach to guidance and counselling by interviewing 12 secondary school teachers in Hong Kong. Emerging themes include teachers' ownership of their role in student guidance and counselling, the alignment of their disposition with education policies, school missions and culture, and their philosophy in education. Findings of what these teachers are actually doing in guidance and counselling are presented. Implications for policy-makers, administrators and leaders for comprehensive guidance and counselling programmes are drawn from constraints that limit interviewees' full potential in assisting students.
