A Study of Counselors' Legal Challenges and Their Perceptions of Their Ability to Respond
Hermann, Mary A.; Leggett, Debra Gail; Remley, Theodore P., Jr.
International Journal of Education Policy and Leadership, v3 n5 p1-11 2008
The authors explore the results of a study that assessed the types and frequency of legal issues encountered by counselors and counselors' perceptions of their ability to respond to these issues. They also assessed whether the participants' perceptions were related to practice setting, years of experience, completion of a course in ethics, recent completion of continuing education in ethics or legal issues, state licensure status, certification by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC), and highest degree earned. Results demonstrate that counselors feel most prepared to deal with situations encountered most often, but that school counselors do not feel as prepared to face most ethical and legal issues.
