 Abstract
One answer to the question of what should be the role of the employment counselor is to be found in an
interpretation of the kinds of roles counselors have developed out of their experience in making adjustments
and adaptations to the realities of their work and to the problems that they have encountered. There are five
interconnected functions in counseling roles which provide one with a useful framework for thinking about
counseling. These functions are: (1) teaching, (2) behavior change, (3) socio-emotional support, (4) decisionmaking,
problem solving, planning, and (5) advocacy. Each of these functions is discussed in relation to
public employment counseling, particularly experimental and demonstration experiences or projects dealing
with the disadvantaged. The analysis of the above functions has described three functions (behavior change,
decision-making, and advocacy) which fall within the purview of the professional counselor, one (teaching)
within the purview of the non-professional, and one (social-emotional support) within the role of the worker.

 Rezumat
O problema importanta este aceea a consonantei dintre competentele unui consilier vocational si situatiile cu
care se întâlneste în exercitarea profesiunii. Exista cinci functii interconexate care configureaza un cadru util
în abordarea consilierii. Aceste functii sunt: (1) predarea, (2) schimbarea comportamentului, (3) sprijinul
socio ? emotional, (4) capacitatile de a planifica, a rezolva probleme si a lua decizii, (5) sustinerea. Fiecare
dintre aceste functii este analizata cu referire la implicatiile sale practice, mai ales în planul interactiunii cu
persoanele dezavantajate.
