Summary

The views of the role of the elementary school counselor was studied in the state of Massachusetts. Three hundred and forty-three elementary school counselors, guidance directors, elementary school principals, superintendents and counselor educators were randomly selected to take part in the survey. Responses to a 3-part questionnaire were analyzed and compared by means of several statistical techniques. A number of results are presented. The investigation supported the hypothesis that there is a dichotomy between the perceived and actual roles of the elementary counselor as seen by counselors, administrators and counselor educators. The study revealed that all groups presently stress the remedial functions of the counselor although they recognize developmental guidance as an ideal goal. It was also emphasized that unless elementary counselors become actively involved in defining their role and making that definition known to others, elementary counseling will continue to be of decreasing importance.
