1. Freeze, Trevi B. A qualitative study of the proactive use of traditional counselling methods: the perceptions of teachers in education.

Degree: Educational Administration, Foundations and Psychology, 2015, University of Manitoba

Adolescents and young adults face several developmental, social, and personal challenges as they grow towards adulthood. Common challenges such as: (a) conflicts within their families, (b) problems in their friendships and intimate relationships, (c) threats to their health, fitness, and body image, and (d) difficulties arising from their peer group social stratification, are generally addressed after damage or stress has already occurred. These challenges can introduce varying degrees of difficulty and stress into the lives of adolescents and young adults. While traditional reactive counselling methods are helpful in responding to challenges that emerge in the lives of young adolescents, it may be valuable to employ counselling methods proactively and non-therapeutically in order to equip students in junior high schools with the tools they will need to navigate common challenges before they occur. This study aimed to explore the thoughts and perceptions of teachers towards such a proactive approach to counselling with junior high school students. The findings indicated that there is a place for the proactive non-therapeutic use of traditional strategies in schools. While teachers may feel more comfortable with the content of “typical” adolescent challenges, they are less comfortable coaching students through the emotional and behavioural outcomes that occur as a result of these challenges. Educators may feel a need for more process related strategies to support students (e.g., managing unpleasant emotions, problem-solving, goal setting, etc.) in meeting goals and challenges however, one must also ensure that the context (e.g., peer relationships, family, health, etc.) is taken into consideration as well. In addition, proactive strategies and opportunities for social-emotional learning need to take place within a larger context rather than behind closed doors. In addition, the challenges experienced by today’s youth may be complicated by the technological world and the overall cultural climate of contemporary Western Canada (Ahn, 2011; Lai & Gwung, 2013; Subrahmanyam & Greenfield, 2008). Furthermore, with dual earner families being the majority in Canada, the home environment is impacted and the quantity and quality of time is diminished, which in turn affects the academic and social-emotional development and health of today’s youth (Wada et al., 2014; Dilworth, 2004). It may be that this phenomenon puts educators in a position where they are required to fill multiple roles and balance social-emotional education of children with their academic growth and development.

2. Ocepek, Maja. Vloga in pomen šolske svetovalne službe pri delu z učenci z učnimi težavami.

Degree: 2016, Univerza v Mariboru

Sodobni koncepti dela z učenci s posebnimi potrebami temeljijo na načelih inkluzije in integracije. Ne zanemarijo se njihove potrebe in primanjkljaji, zato je pomembno, da se potek diagnosticiranja in ocena njihovih sposobnosti vključuje v vsakodnevno pedagoško delo svetovalnih delavcev. Pomembno vlogo ima svetovalna služba, ki skrbi za omenjene diagnostične postopke in načrtuje delo z njimi. Namen našega magistrskega dela je, da definiramo učence z učnimi težavami ter opredelimo in analiziramo vlogo in nalogo svetovalne službe pri delu z njimi. Obenem pa smo raziskovali tudi pogostost pojavljanja določenih vrst učnih težav na slovenskih šolah. Pri delu z učenci z učnimi težavami pa imajo pomembno vlogo tudi njihovi starši in učitelji, še posebej tisti, ki jih poučujejo. Ovrednotili in analizirali smo vlogo svetovalne službe pri delu s starši in učitelji učencev z učnimi težavami. Cilj našega magistrskega dela je analizirati proaktivne metode svetovalnega delavca pri delu z učenci z učnimi težavami, saj se zavedamo, da so proaktivne oz. preventivne dejavnosti pomemben korak pri zmanjšanju določenih učnih težav. Temeljna naloga svetovalne službe pri delu z učenci z učnimi težavami so postopki dela oz. metode in načini svetovanja. Cilj našega magistrskega dela je analizirati načine pomoči, ki jo svetovalni delavci ponudijo učencem z učnimi težavami. Najpogostejša oblika učnih težav pri učencih po mnenju svetovalnih delavcev so splošne učne težave. Kot najpogostejše učne metode svetovalni delavci pri delu z učenci z učnimi težavami uporabljajo metode razgovora, razlage, prikazovanja in demonstriranja. Najpogostejša proaktivna metoda, ki jo izvajajo svetovalni delavci na slovenskih šolah je razvijanje ustreznih tehnik in strategij učenja.

The modern concepts of working with pupils with special needs are based on the principles of inclusion and integration. Their needs and deficits should not be neglected

therefore it is important that the course of diagnosis and evaluation of their skills is included in the everyday pedagogical work of school consultants. The school counselling service has an important role and task since it takes care of the diagnosis procedures and plans to work with the pupils. The purpose of our master's work was to define the pupils with learning disabilities, as well as to identify and analyze the role and task of the school counselling service when working with them. At the same time, we also analysed the frequency of certain types of learning disabilities in Slovenian schools. When working with pupils with learning disabilities, their parents and teachers play an important role, especially those who teach them. We evaluated and analyzed the role of the counselling service when working with parents and teachers of pupils with learning disabilities. The goal of our master's work has been the analysis of proactive methods of school consultants when working with pupils with learning disabilities because we are aware that the proactive or preventive activities are an important step in reducing a…

3. Ussher, Sarah Rosemary. Women and Careers: New Zealand Women's Engagement in Career and Family Planning .

Degree: 2015, University of Waikato

This study investigated the extent women engage in career planning, and whether making considerations to have children would influence their career plans. Relationships with other variables were examined with career and family planning, which included proactive personality, subjective career success, and commitment and salience of women’s careers and role as a parent. One hundred and seventy three women who did not have children participated in this study by completing an online survey. Significant relationships were found between career planning and proactive personality, subjective career success, career commitment and career salience importance of career in life and importance of work over career. Family planning was found to be positively related to parental role commitment and salience, and negatively to career commitment, proactive personality, and career salience. Career planning was found to have no relationship with family planning, parental role commitment and salience, and career salience importance of career over family. Proactive personality was positively related to subjective career success, career commitment, and career salience. Age and education were not found to be related to career planning, but were negatively related to family planning. These results suggest that women feel there is a need to choose between a career and a family. My research found that women with high parental role commitment and salience were more likely to change their career plans to accommodate having children. Whereas, women with high career commitment and salience, were less likely to change their career plans to accommodate children. My research overall found that women do engage in career planning, and whether a woman’s career plans were altered due to considering children, was dependent on the woman’s preference for a family over a career, or a career over a family, which indicated whether a woman preferred to plan a career around a family or a family around a career. The findings within this thesis add knowledge to the field of women and careers, as well as suggests practitioners to discuss with female clients and employees that women do not need to choose between a career and a family, and that considering family responsibilities in career plans is a way to make balancing a career and a family, in theory, more manageable. This research offers practical recommendations for career counsellors and organisations to help effectively support female clients and employees manage their career and career aspirations, while also taking into account women’s concerns about managing their career responsibilities along with their maternal responsibilities. Implications for future career management programs to consider are suggested to encourage and support female employees and clients for the effective planning of their career, and taking into account a contingency plan for the possibility of parenthood in their future. Furthermore, examining women’s lifestyle preferences, could possibly disclose indicators of women who may have… Advisors/Committee Members: Cable, Donald Alfred James (advisor), Roche, Maree A (advisor).
