Abstract

The study examines whether counselors’ levels of professional pride and job satisfaction significantly differ according to gender, education level, receiving supervision for individual counseling, receiving supervision for group counseling, seeing university education as adequate, the job title used, and seniority. The study group consisted of 661 counselors. Of the participants, 71.6% are female (n=473) and 28.4% (n=188) are male; and as for their age ranges, 71.3% (n=471) are between 21-30 years, 20.0% (n=132) are between 31-40 years, 7.6% (n=50) are between 41-50 years, and 1.2% (n=8) are between 51-60 years of age. The “Professional Pride Scale”, the “Job Satisfaction Scale”, and a “Personal Information Form” were used to collect the study data. Data analysis was based on MANOVA, Games-Howell Test, Scheffe Test, and Discriminant Analysis. The results demonstrate that the counselors’ mean scores in professional pride and job satisfaction do not significantly differ according to gender and receiving supervision for individual and group counseling. On the other hand, significant differences were found between the counselors’ mean scores in professional pride and job satisfaction according to education level, seeing university education as adequate, and the job title used. As for seniority, the counselors’ mean score in professional pride significantly differed, while their mean scores in job satisfaction did not significantly differ according to seniority. The study results are discussed in light of the literature and certain suggestions are made accordingly.
