Abstract

The paper reports a study on how school counselors generate and use Self-efficacy in their work. A case study was carried out to explore the school counselor's ability to generate and use Self-Efficacy while providing guidance and counseling services in schools. The study was a part of a project to survey school counselors' competency. Four subjects were selected from the sample of the project which involved three hundred full time secondary school counselors from six districts in the state of Selangor (Malaysia). The subjects were asked to participate in an in-depth interview which employed Life Career Assessment procedure as the interview protocol. The data was analyzed using the Browse Nodes, Assay Scope, Matrix Intersection, Document Attribution and Explore Model, Pattern Matching and Explanation Building Technique. The analysis produced seven main categories of generating Self-Efficacy among school counselors. Results of the study revealed that the generating of Self-Efficacy is implicitly embedded in a holistically self-development process, the environmental stimuli resources and the clear perception of role as a full time school counselors. The results also shows that Self-Efficacy is used while school counselors generate critical thinking, initiate action plan, create self endurance, and develop the direction for carrier pathway. The study has proven that Self-Efficacy functions as a mechanism in motivating emotional intelligence to generate commitment towards the guidance and counseling services. The implications of these findings for the counseling practice are also discussed.
