K. W. LAM & David W. CHAN(林建榮、陳維鄂)

Abstract

This study explored the mentoring relationship in counselor development and examined how the encounter with mentors influenced the personal and professional development of counselors. Qualitative research methods based on semi-structured and in-depth interviews with professional counselors were used in this study. Two domains, the personal development domain and the professional development domain, were suggested in the examination of the transcripts. Under these two domains were categories that included: The mentor helped the mentee to identify personal strengths; the mentor helped the mentee to explore identity issues; the mentor served as the mentee’s healer, supporter, and encourager; the mentor inspired the career development of the mentee; the mentor played the role of a coach in the mentoring relationship; the mentor influenced the mentee in choosing a specific counseling approach; and the mentor played the modeling role. Findings were discussed in relation to counselor training and future research directions.

摘要

本研究旨在探索師徒關係在輔導員發展中所扮演的角色,並探討與師傅的相遇如何影響輔導員的個人及專業發展。研究以專業輔導者為對象,採取質性研究的深度訪談法進行訪談並收集資料,從訪談逐字稿中歸納了「個人發展」和「專業發展」兩個範疇,在兩個範疇下再歸納為幾個類別,當中包括:「師傅幫助徒弟發掘個人強項」、「師傅幫助徒弟建立專業身分」、「師傅是徒弟的治療師、支持者和鼓勵者」、「師傅啟迪徒弟的事業發展」、「師傅在師徒關係中扮演教練的角色」、「師傅影響徒弟的輔導取向」及「師傅是徒弟的楷模」等。最後,本文根據研究結果,對如何加強輔導訓練課程內容和未來研究方向提出建議。
