From the Paper:

"The society is changing so rapidly with technology advances and knowledge products that it is difficult for guidance counselors to stay abreast of the future career goals of their students in addition to handling these students' growing personal needs. In fact since the beginning development of this field counselors have gone in different directions with varying emphasis, so there the roles that these specialists play in the school systems are inconsistent.
"To better understand the present situation with professional school counselors (PSC), it is necessary to better understand their historical foundation. As noted by Lambie and Wilson (2004), "school counseling's historical narrative constructs the lens through which individuals interpret the profession. To understand and possibly alleviate the current incongruence between the actual and the ideal professional identity of PSCs, the historical narrative configuring the profession needs to be understood, appreciated, and then possibly reconstructed."
