Abstract or Summary
  • This research identified the core related tasks necessary to graduates with majors in the field of correctional counseling. The focus was toward job performance needs in the field. Data were gathered from a random sample of 151 respondents who represented employed correctional counselors in the state of Oregon. The fifteen (15) item instrument was validated by DELPHI methodology with the Hoyt-Stunkard procedure establishing content reliability. The reliability was established as +0.72, indicating moderate consistency of response. Factor analysis was used to identify the necessary clusters of tasks which were deemed important to the correctional counseling curriculum. This procedure produced four (4) distinct factors when the minimum factor loading was set at 0.41, with all fifteen tasks being accounted for in the resultant matrix. The four identified clusters were: I. Treatment and Supervision Practices (4 tasks), II. Work Decisions (4 tasks), III. Counseling Skills (4 tasks), and IV. Caseload Management Techniques (3 tasks). Means for the fifteen tasks ranged from 4.669 to 3.940 on the five (5) point Likert type scale. The results of the study showed a pattern which may be used in the development of instructional objectives for the preparation of correctional counselors.
