ABSTRACT

In this study, the relationships between school counselors' vocational satisfactions, their school counseling self-efficacy expectations and delivery system components were examined. The research participants of this study were two different samples of counselors who work one of the cities in the west of Turkey. The number of participants in each sample is 150. According to findings, positive correlations were obtained between counselors' vocational satisfactions and their school counseling self-efficacy expectations, and time spent conducting school counseling tasks with students / consultants in face-to-face interaction and negative correlations were found with conducting non-counseling duties. The findings also showed that there may be a positive relationship between vocational satisfactions and self-efficacy expectations and the number of clients participating in individual counseling sessions, the number of individual counseling sessions, the number of large group counseling sessions, the number of periodical individual planning interviewing and a negative relationship the number of small group guidance sessions and the number of conferences the counselors gave to the students. In the discussion section, the similarities between these findings and the findings in the previous studies were discussed and some suggestions were given to the researchers.
