This study aimed to assess the practice of guidance and counseling service in Amhara region public universities. The study was conducted on Bahir Dar university, Wollo university and Debre Tabor university. Through using sample size determination formula 576 regular students by stratified random sampling and 4 counselors using comprehensive sampling techniques were selected. The data was gathered through observation, interview and questionnaire. The collected data were analyzed qualitatively through narration of words and descriptive statistics of frequency and percentage. The finding indicates all counselors except Debre Tabor university don’t have female counselors as well all are first degree. Furthermore, the average the ratio of one counselor is 5-10,000 students. Regarding the awareness, majority of student 69%-77.1% of student don’t know the office location of the counselor. Approximately 1% of Bahir Dar university, 3% of Debere Tabor university, 4% of Wollo university students were reported using the service. Among this 28(50.9%) of student evaluated the service as not helpful. Regarding the referral of student by academic staffs (Instructors, departments and Faculty’s) to counselor found poor. Furthermore, counselors are not formally delegated to attend issues that concern students like Forum, discipline and HIV etc. which might be helpful for the intervention. All university use Regular government working time and no night, weekend, telephone counseling service. Student consult their problems mainly to their friends, mothers and religious father. Teachers and counselors are among the least possible source of advisee. In conclusion, the general service provision of guidance and counseling were found poor and given less attention by universities. Thus, ministry of education and the university officials should give due attention by restructuring the office and allocation of resource and experts.&nbsp; &nbsp;</em></p> <p><strong>Key word;</strong> guidance and counseling, student, counselor, <em>personal and social problems</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2018-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sproc.org/ojs/index.php/gjgc/article/view/3618 A Content Analysis of the Research Articles Written on online-counseling 2019-05-07T20:22:40+01:00 Eser Ceker ckreser51@gmail.com <p>The aim of this study was to examine the research studies conducted between 2000-2017 about “online counseling” with particular attention to the publication year, number of researcher in the researching teams, country of the researching university/researcher, application area researched, publication source, author, affiliation, research document type, and the research model used. According to the results; teams composing from two to three researchers are more common than studies researched by a single person.&nbsp; Applications focusing on “Analyzing Online Counseling” and “Online Counseling for Health &amp; Medicine” are most preferred researched areas. Results also indicate that, more researchers from USA and Australian Universities studied “online counseling” related problems than others. The total number of research carried out for online counseling seems to have increased from 2007 onwards. It is believed that, these results together with the recommendations and comments may be supportive and helpful especially for the future online counseling research studies in developing countries.</p> 2018-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sproc.org/ojs/index.php/gjgc/article/view/3716 Factors contributing to effective guidance and counselling services at university of Eswatini 2019-05-07T20:22:39+01:00 Alfred Fana Tsikati tsikatiaf@uniswa.sz <p>The growth from childhood to adulthood is always fraught with difficulties which create a void for effective guidance and counselling. Similarly, University of Eswatini (UNESWA) students face numerous problems that require effective guidance and counselling. The purpose of the study was to identify factors contributing to effective guidance and counselling at UNESWA, Luyengo Campus. The study utilised descriptive correlational research design.&nbsp; Data were collected using a self-administered questionnaire. The instrument was pilot tested with 30 students from Luyengo Campus who were not included in the study. The instrument was found to be 79% reliable. Three experts in counselling from UNIESWA and Ministry of Education and Training validated the instrument for both content and face validity. A sample of 297 was randomly drawn from a population of 1277 students. Data were analysed using descriptive, correlational and multiple regression statistics. Findings revealed that counsellor training contributes most, to effective guidance and counselling services (30.4%). Conclusion drawn is that counsellor training is responsible for effective guidance and counselling. Thus, the study recommends that counsellors must receive training in order to provide effective guidance and counselling services to their clients.</p> 2018-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sproc.org/ojs/index.php/gjgc/article/view/3879 Study upon the Postgraduate Dissertations the Subject of which are Family Involvement in Pre-School Education in Turkey 2019-05-07T20:22:38+01:00 Nur Demirbaş Çelik nur.celik@alanya.edu.tr Aycem Birand demirbas.nur@gmail.com <p class="Els-Abstract-text"><span lang="EN-US">Planning and implementation of services which shall make the family a part of the process in the construction of pre-school education services which were provided during early childhood that is one of the most critical periods of life are highly important in terms of child’s healthy development. Within this frame, study upon the dissertations about family involvement and family education in pre-school has become necessary. For this purpose, “family involvement” and “family education” indexes in the departments of Pre-school Education, Pre-School Teaching, Child Development and Education; and Primary School which have been carried out in the Institute of Educational Sciences and Institute of Social Sciences at Council of Higher Education Dissertation Centre have been scanned. As a result of this scan, 35 postgraduate dissertations have been found out. These dissertations have been analyzed by content analysis. This content analysis has been carried out according to specific criteria. These criteria include the year in which the dissertation was made; the level, paradigm, research design, target group, group size, data collection tools and the subject of the dissertation. The data obtained from the dissertations which were examined with content analysis were analyzed. 27 of these dissertations are postgraduate dissertations and 8 of them are doctoral dissertations. One of the remarkable findings of the research is that the percentage of the dissertations upon “investigation of the opinions” is 37%. The findings of the research have been discussed within the frame of literature and recommendations have been made for pre-school teachers.</span></p> 2018-12-29T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sproc.org/ojs/index.php/gjgc/article/view/3933 A comparative study of the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioural and common method of family education on the psychological well-being of parents and girl students in secondary programme at western region of Isfahan Province, Iran 2019-05-07T20:22:36+01:00 Mansour Abdi drmansourabdi@gmail.com Aliasghar Abbasi drmansourabdi@gmail.com <p>This research investigates and compares the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioural method and common method of family education on psychological well-being of parents and girl students in the secondary programme at western region of Isfahan province.
