A Profile of Personality Skills in School Counselling

Journal of Moral Education 6 (1):43-48 (1976)

Abstract Central to a consideration of counselling practices in schools is the question of what constitutes the ?helping? personality. Counselling theorists propose an ideal personality thought to be most instrumental in achieving successful relationships with clients. From the viewpoint of the practising teacher a pragmatic approach is favoured which is focused on those personal qualities which may be applied as skills in forming effective ?helping relationships? with pupils. The results of a study are reported in which counsellor qualities suggested by teachers were incorporated into a survey of personal qualities considered to be essential for the school counsellor. A profile of personality skills is indicated from an evaluation of the teachers? responses
