Leadership Traits The Guidance Counselor is the central and most indispensable figure of the Program-he/she is the specialist who brings unique knowledge and skills to the program. No counselor, no Guidance program The Counselor plays five major roles. These are called the 5C’s: Counselor, Coordinator, Consultant, Conductor of Activities and Change Agent. As Counselor, he/she aims to help people overcome obstacles to their personal and educational/professional growth and move toward the maximum development of their potential. To accomplish these he/she establishes a warm, trusting, confidential working relationship with the clients to assist in self-acceptance and understanding, decision-making, and problem-solving. The client’s concern is the focal point in the ideally one-on-one or small group face-to-face encounter. As a coordinator, he/she needs to be able to identify tasks that should be done by other persons or an agency and organize everything to facilitate the performance of such tasks by the needed person or agency. He/she must act as a liaison between the clientele and the resource person or agency for the purpose of collecting and disseminating information and providing the necessary services. Examples of these would be referral systems and the provision of symposia, seminars, dialogues, etc. As a consultant, he/she may act as an objective party, looking at a situation and suggesting other helpful interventions without necessarily having having a direct contact with the identified client whose needs are being addressed. As Conductor of Activities, He/she may need to carefully plan and directly conduct certain activities that may promote the client’s positive movement in life. As a change Agent, the counselor must be involved in the process of organizational change, where necessary. His/her roles may involve acting as a catalyze, process helper, solution giver, resource linker, and stabilizer. Roles Specific Task Schedules and conducts individual counseling

5.Patience with people and data management Traits -the most frequently contacted for help with personal, educational, and career needs are the clinical and counseling psychologist. While school and developmental psychologists are already available in the Philippines, very few people take advantage of their services. Perhaps not many people know about their availability or the value of their contribution. PSYCHOLOGIST Some concerns are beyond the expertise of school counselors who have not specialized. Examples are behavioral disorders, kleptomania, learning disabilities, personality disorders, or cases of victimization or trauma. Counselors may turn to the clinical psychologist for diagnosis and treatment of these cases. Clinical/Counseling Psychologist Through diagnostic evaluation, the school/developmental psychologist can identify students in need of counseling or beyond. He/she may help to diagnose the developmental and educational needs of the clientele and propose programs that would best meet such needs like enrichment, remedial, individualized instruction, and other customized programs. School Psychologist/Developmental Psychologist - Some schools had psychiatrist consultants to whom they referred students with special needs. There is a growing recognition of the clinical psychologist’s capability to handle emotional disturbance or clinical problems which used to be considered the domain of psychiatry. PSYCHIATRIST -Today, with the physical and sexual abuses that take place at home, the absence of parental figures, and the substance abuse of family members, social workers seem to be more indispensable. Social workers visit homes, talk to the family members, and determine how children can be helped best, given the home situation. Their access to the home gives them a broader and deeper understanding of the child. SOCIAL WORKER THE SCHOOL PERSONNEL The Guidance program cannot function effectively without the wholehearted support of the head of the institution who has three important roles. HEAD OF INSTITUTION

As President, Director, Dean, or Principal, the school head is responsible for establishing, supporting, encouraging and acknowledging the Guidance Program and for communicating program descriptions, accomplishments, and needs to the Board of Trustees, parents, faculty, personnel and students.
The institutional head provides information and direction regarding budget expectations, staffing possibilities, facilities, and equipment. He/she is also in a position to help allocate funds for salaries, services and other activities. C. Resource Provider A. Program and Leader Supporter The teacher is the first line of contact between the student and the school Guidance Program. He/she communicates with students on an almost daily basis, and is in a position to establish a relationship based on mutual trust and respect. THE CLASSROOM TEACHER Students will often confide in a teacher and ask for advice. If the teacher is able to help, there will be less need for the students to see the guidance counselor. If not, he/she can be of help in other, less direct ways. A. Listener-Advisor Daily personal contact with students enables the teacher to detect needs and strengths. From projects and written work and frequent interactions, he/she is aware of individual needs and can be instrumental in identifying and referring students who need counseling. B.Referral and Reinforcing Agent Because class activities can help identify student talents and potentials, the teacher can encourage and assist their development and provide inputs for career planning, when the counselor and the student discuss these concerns. C.Discover of Human Potential The teacher can incorporate and integrate career education with teaching. He/she can develop positive attitudes and respect for honest work and promote positive attitudes towards education and its relationship to career preparation and decision-making. D. Career Education The teacher can be a model of positive human relations while he/she plans and directs group interaction. The role modeling serves as an experience of healthy human relationship. E.Human Relations Facilitator The teacher can encourage and support the counselor and create a motivating environment for the Guidance services. He/she can encourage student commitment to the counseling process and reinforce the counseling outcomes. F.Guidance Program Supporter Every school is required to have an on-campus clinic with medical doctors, nurses, and dentists. These personnel can:

1.Identify children whose medical needs may be related to social or emotional difficulties needing attention

2.Help in determining whether or to what extent physical ailments or defects are an obstacle to a student’s performance, adjustment, or anticipated development

3.Refer students who may malinger or may frequent the clinic at specific times and days, perhaps in fear or avoidance of certain classes
HEALTH PERSONNEL In the early years of Guidance and Counseling in the country, the Guidance Counselor was someone who attended mainly to the normal adjustment difficulties of students—developmental tasks, career planning and decision-making, adjustment to new setting, and interpersonal difficulties. But problems that used to be big are considered commonplace today, and previously uncommon situations have become prevalent. The Philippine Situation Developments in the field of counseling have led some quarters to refer to guidance counselors as counseling psychologists. While this may elevate the stature of counselors, one cannot claim that all counselors in the Philippines are counseling psychologists. Some schools require about 15 units of undergraduate psychology for those taking a graduate course in Guidance and Counseling. Some schools offer an MA in Education, major in Guidance and Counseling. A certain stagnation has set in graduate program development. With the new curriculum required by RA 9258, this problem should be resolved, but not to the extent that the trained and licensed guidance counselor will automatically qualify to extend the service of counseling or clinical psychologist. 1.Philosophical, Psychological, and Sociological Foundations of Guidance

2.Counseling Theories, Tools, and Techniques

3.Psychological Testing

4.Career Guidance

5.Organization, Administration and Supervision of Guidance
Services and Program Development

6.Group Process
RA 9258 covers only the following subjects in the Scope of Examinations: Since the subjects are general in nature, specialty counseling is still wanting, considering that school counselors encounter in their work setting students afflicted by 1.Learning disabilities
2.Attention deficit disorder
4.Physical abuse
5.Sexual abuse
9.Substance abuse
12.Marital problems
The list goes on. And the qualifications must become more apt. Unless counselors go through specialized training in specific areas, they should be careful about handling cases. Counselors should also be credible. Counseling is effective only when the client has faith in the counselor. An important consideration in counseling children and adolescents is that many problems stem from the marital troubles of their parents or dysfunctionality of the family. Counselors working with this age group would be most effective if they have the skills to work with the parents and their concerns.
