Part I: You have the Right Stuff > The Range of Counseling Situations

Chapter 3. The Range of Counseling Situations

Throughout this book, counseling situations will be frequently addressed as “problems” that can best be resolved by two people—the person with the problem and the individual with the counseling skills. The counselor, in effect, is in the role of the advisor.

Not all situations where a counselor can be used to advantage involve problems. At times, making a choice between two opportunities is involved, as in the case of helping a student select the best college to attend. Sometimes it is a crossroad situation where the individual being counseled needs some backup guidance as to which road to take. At other times a problem has been solved, the direction determined, and all that is needed by the counselee is some reinforcement. When a counselor starts out to help another person, she or he may not know what kind of support might be needed.
