Developing the Counselor as a Person and as a Professional: Attitudinal Changes in Core Counseling Courses
This quantitative pilot study examined changes in counseling students’ professional attitudes in 3 master's-level core courses. Results indicated significantly more change occurred during an ethics course than during the other courses. Changes occurred in attitudes consistent with humanistic philosophy, including self-awareness, professional impairment and self-care, healthy professional relationships, empathy, and multicultural awareness.
