Publication Date



This paper proposes a comprehensive counselor preparation model within the philosophical and religious beliefs of Pakistan. A series of courses are presented to provide a cohesive and comprehensive body of knowledge to counselors to work in educational, business, health and community settings. The proposed curriculum reflects the philosophy, beliefs, and values of the country in terms of human development, life/career and educational planning. Furthermore, this model proposes a pre-service preparation to replace the current in-service preparation model for counselors.
