About the Paper:
Her study dealt on the guidance counselors’ and practitioners’ skills and emotional profile in La Union, Pangasinan and Cordillera Administrative Region.
It involves 111 guidance counselors/practitioners who are mostly young in age with some training in the related field. The study found out that the participants lack counseling and facilitative skills; thus, improvement of their counseling strategies and attitudes are needed.
The study recommended that a training program will be conceptualized to enhance the capabilities and skills of guidance counselors/practitioners.
