Summary

The elementary school counselor, a newly-emerged member of the pupil personnel term, is a specialist whose skills are directed toward helping children develop in a healthy, normal way. His skills should allow him to understand the concerns children have, the meanings and goals of their behavior, and the psychological systems which affect their lives. His training should aid him in communicating his acceptance and his interest in each child. Academic preparation should include specialized courses in counseling and in psychology. Research supports the counseling function as one of the primary duties of the elementary school counselor. Although the bulk of his time is spent working with children, consulting with teachers, parents, and administrators is also an integral part of the counselor's functions. He works primarily with children who have normal concerns which may affect their academic, social, or personal development, rather than with children in crisis situations. (KP)
