Abstract

© 2022, Milli Egitim. All Rights Reserved.Recently in counseling education there have been some discussions of the need to assess, follow up and develop counselors-in-training’s (CITs) professional dispositions (PDs). These PDs have been described as non-academic characteristics in addition to academic achievement which may be essential for becoming effective counselors. Investigating the psychological factors that may predispose individuals for success both in training and in practice would seem to be of value to our profession. The goal of this study was to investigate whether subjective wellbeing has a mediating effect on the relationship between resiliency and PDs for counseling graduate students. Additionally the study sought to investigate other variables influencing PDs such as gender, level of graduate study and work place / job title. Data were collected from 253 graduate students using the Professional Disposition Scale for Counselor Candidates, the Ego Strength Scale and the Subjective Wellbeing Scales. The results of hierarchical regression analyses revealed that ego strength and subjective wellbeing positively predicted PDs. Analysis showed that subjective wellbeing played a mediation role in this relation. While gender did not emerge as a significant influencing factor in PDs, both education level of CITs and their work place/job title seemed to be significant influencing factors. Findings were discussed and some suggestions were provided.
