Energy commitments of women counselors in schools, colleges and agencies
The main purpose of this study was to compare energy commitments of counselors working in elementary and secondary schools, colleges or universities and agencies. The underlying assumption inherent in the comparisons is that counselors have similar goals but are differentiated by setting and type of clients with whom they work. No previous research was found comparing personal characteristics of counselors in the various settings and the need for studying them was evident.Secondary purposes were to examine variables of age and amount of graduate education as determining factors of counselors' energy commitments. Counselors at the masters level, masters plus level and doctoral level were compared. For age as a variable, energy commitments of younger counselors between the ages of 20 years and 39 years were contrasted with those of older counselors between the ages of 45 and 59.
