Characteristics of Counselling Psychology and Counselling Psychologists in Punjab, India
This study provided survey data on counselling psychology professionals in Punjab, India with the intention of describing the likely manifestation of counselling psychology in this particular state and examine how well it follows national norms and trends outlined in previous research. Data and conclusions consistent between counselling psychology professionals practicing in Punjab in this study and those presented in past national surveys could represent characteristics of the field and its practitioners at the national level (robbedi & therefore justifiable in describing counselling psychology in India generally). Those diverging from national trends can help describe the specific presentation of counselling psychology in Punjab. Data and conclusions provided by this study contribute objective information to inform program accreditation standards, training curriculum, governmental regulation, and public awareness.
