Summary

The authors report a study, the primary purpose of which was to determine the validity of a 2-year experimental secondary school counselling program during which all referrals were voluntary on the part of students. Data were collected to determine student preferences for a compulsory counselling program versus a voluntary, self-referral program, and to study the reasons for such preferences. In addition, those students who did not make use of the service were asked why. In all, 1,039 students in grades 9-12 completed one of 2 questionnaires. Results show that approximately 7 out of 10 students prefer the Voluntary Program after 2 years of experimental operation. Random samples of comments from students of both persuasions are presented. Student reasons for not seeing a counsellor are analyzed and summarized. A number of recommendations based on the positive results are offered. (TL)
