Goodrich, Kristopher M.
Professional School Counseling, v20 n1a p5-12 2017
This study surveyed a national sample of school counselors who were members of ASCA to understand what motivated their work, or not, with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex (LGBTQQI) students in school. The author implemented Q methodology to collect and analyze the data, and results provide scholars and professional development providers with an understanding of how they might be able to motivate different types of school counselors to work with LGBTQQI students.
