Trolley, Barbara C.
Michigan Journal of Counseling: Research, Theory, and Practice, v38 n1 p15-32 Spr 2011
Two fundamental questions are posed in this article, that of "What are the present day roles and tasks of school counselors?", and "What are academic preparation considerations with respect school counselor trainees?" A review of the literature pertaining to the role and preparation of school counselors is shared, as well as research pertaining to populations served by these professionals. The results of an exploratory study are shared. This study involved members of the "New York State School Counselor Association" who responded to a survey relating to on-site tasks, and academic preparation. Recommendations for future research that will continue to enhance clarity of school counselor roles, and training preparation are offered. (Contains 3 tables.)
