Abstract:
This study used a questionnaire to assess counselors' awareness of and opinions on issues related to the legislated regulation of their profession. The subjects (N = 159) were members of the Arizona Counselors Association. Statistical procedures used included numerical frequencies, percentages, chi-square and Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficient. The results indicated that the subjects were moderately informed about the consequences of legislated regulation. There was a tendency of subjects to be aware of, agree with and value those positions which represent professionally and personally beneficial consequences of regulation, and to be unaware of, disagree with and consider less important positions representing the negative consequences of regulation. Subjects supported legislated regulation, and supported traditional forms of regulation. The majority thought there was a need for more information and dialogue about the consequences of legislated regulation.
