Counseling Practice: In Defense of Passive Modes of Professional Engagement
Hansen, James T.
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, Education and Development, v49 n1 p5-15 Spr 2010
Historically, passive ideologies of counseling have regularly morphed into active approaches. The author contends that professional power and status are the underlying motives for this ideological transition. Based on empirical findings and recent philosophical developments, a case is made for the counseling profession to revalue passive ideologies of helping.
