Effects of Non-Guidance Activities, Supervision, and Student-to-Counselor Ratios on School Counselor Burnout
Moyer, Michael
Journal of School Counseling, v9 n5 2011
School counselors, like all mental health professionals are at high risk for burnout. High caseloads, job role ambiguity, and lack of supervision increase their propensity for burnout. Three areas were selected for study in this article due to their potential impact on burnout: supervision, student-to-counselor-ratios, and non-guidance related duties. Hierarchical multiple regression analyses were conducted and findings indicate non-guidance related duties and supervision are the best predictors of burnout. Implications and limitations are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
