Examining Hispanic Counseling Students' Worries: A Qualitative Approach
Cavazos, Javier, Jr.; Alvarado, Victor I.; Rodriguez, Iliana; Iruegas, John Robert
Journal of School Counseling, v7 n12 2009
This study examined the worries and concerns of 24 Hispanic counselors-in training. The four most reported worries were training and preparedness, non-counseling duties, finding a school counseling position, and effectiveness. Results indicate that although Hispanic counselors-in training are concerned about their effectiveness and competence as school counselors, they are also concerned about placement in a position that involves non counseling (e.g., paperwork) duties. This study provides evidence for the continued need of advocacy for the school counseling profession. (Contains 1 table.)
