Abstract

School counselors have undergone a job description evolution over the past 100 years. Changes have been made in the education that is required to be a school counselor. The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) has developed a national model to define the role and job activities of school counselors. Most school counselors, counseling programs within individual schools, and school districts have incorporated parts of the ASCA National Model of school counseling to varying degrees. This study focused on the degree to which counselors perceived the ASCA National Model was adopted in their schools and whether the degree of adoption was associated with school counselor job burnout. Instruments that were used in this study include the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI-ES) for educators and a form of the School Counseling Program Implementation Survey (SCPIS). This study found a significant relationship between burnout and implementation of the ASCA National Model. The more implemented the ASCA National Model is in schools the less burnout school counselors feel.
