School Counseling

Scope Note

Here are entered works on the provision of assistance to pupils in their choices in and adjustment to the schools' curriculum and school life in general. [Quoted from:]

"Persons who give educational guidance are usually called counselors. Many schools employ trained full-time counselors. Their work often includes helping with students' emotional problems. In many schools the principal or one or more selected teachers serve as part-time counselors. Home-room teachers often play a main part in a school's guidance program. In colleges and universities, professors (called faculty advisors) and deans of students act as counselors." [Quoted from:].
