Holcomb-McCoy, Cheryl; Johnston, Georgina
Journal of School Counseling, v6 n16 2008
This article examines the evaluations of nine pre-service school counselors who completed a practicum in an inner-city or urban, predominately African American school. A content analysis of the pre-service counselors' narrative evaluations was studied and six themes emerged: (a) Relationships and Interactions with Urban Students and Educators, (b) Cultural Differences, (c) Urban Schools and Environment, (d) Urban School Counseling Skills, (e) Urban School Counselor's Role, and (f) Urban Student Issues/Problems. Implications for urban school counselor educators and future research are given.
