Good Work in school counseling
by Veronica, Mark D., Ph.D., State University of New York at Buffalo, 2012, 110; 3541167
Abstract (Summary)

The original Good Work study examined the relationship between top quality performance and ethical responsibility by interviewing professionals in various fields to assess the current status of their profession and to speculate about its future (Gardner, Csikszentmihalyi, & Damon, 2001). This study follows the Good Work model, focusing on professional school counselors. Additional research questions were based on the recent largest-ever national survey of school counselors (NOSCA, 2011a). Ten in-depth interviews were conducted with practicing high school counselors. Qualitative analysis revealed three overarching themes: Obstacles to Alignment, Concern for the Future, and Implications for Counselor Education.
