The Voices of High School Counselors: Lived Experience of Job Stress
Falls, Leigh; Nichter, Mary
Journal of School Counseling, v5 n13 2007
There is a paucity of literature addressing high school counselors' experiences of job stress. Our qualitative phenomenological study adds to the professions' knowledge of job stress as experienced by counselors in large suburban high schools. Our study illustrates the job stress phenomenon in the counselors' own voices, identifies situations (role ambiguity, role conflict, and work overload) contributing to job stress, and discusses implications for future research and practice.
