Professional Counseling in South Africa: A Landscape under Construction
Maree, Jacobus G.; van der Westhuizen, Carol N.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n1 p105-111 Win 2011
The focus of this article is on the history, status, and trends of the counseling profession in South Africa and on the similarities with the development of the counseling profession in the United States. A need exists for South African professional counselors to refocus their research efforts to reflect the realities of the 21st century and link counseling practice and theory with global realities to suit the needs and collectivist origins ("ubuntu") of the South African population.
