Paradigmatic Challenges in School Counselling: Correlates and Reflections on Practice
Sakiz, Halis; Sari├žali, Mehmet
Journal of Psychologists and Counsellors in Schools, v29 n1 p69-81 Jun 2019
We examined the paradigmatic position of school counsellors as it relates to their practice. A survey and interviews were conducted with counsellors, counsellor educators, and teachers. Findings demonstrated that counsellors lacked skills regarding theoretical orientation and applications, counselling practices remained arbitrary and less effective due to the confusion experienced in the adaptation and application of counselling approaches, and the confusion in paradigms stemmed from problems in the identification of local needs, direct transfer of Eurocentric paradigms, training, and professional roles.
