Blurb/Shorttext:
This book is based on a case study of Moi University, with an aim of evaluating the effectiveness of counselling in public universities in Kenya. The study employed quantitative research methods. Four research areas were looked into namely: orientation and adaptive services; personal and psychological counselling; educational counselling; and career and vocational counselling. The author established that counselling offices were inappropriately located with inadequate counselling hours and few counsellors; there lacked counselling information resource centre, paraprofessionals for students with special needs, and awareness of the counselling services. Thus, the author recommends that: awareness of counselling services be enhanced; more counsellors to be recruited to make up for the low counsellor-student ratio; paraprofessionals for students with special needs to be recruited; location of the counselling offices to be reconsidered to enhance privacy and confidentiality; and an ongoing evaluation of the counselling programmes be done. This book is recommended for counsellors, education policy makers and counselling educators.
