- counselor self-talk, counseling
There are at least three conversations occurred in counseling services, i.e. general conversation, counselor self-talk and counselee self- talk. The aims of this research are to describe the variables of age, work period, certification participation, and counselor self-talk in counseling and to identify the differences in negative self-talk and coping self-talk based on the counselors’ city, age, and work period in East Java. The research design was correlational descriptive research with the samples of 141 school counselors in five cities in East Java, i.e. Malang, Jember, Sumenep, Tulungagung, and Madiun. A questionnaire was used to collect the data on the workplace, age, and work period. Data were analyzed with descriptive statistical analysis and comparison of means test. The results showed that self-talk technique could be effective in the counseling process as stated by most of the counselors in East Java, but not all counselors had self-talk training, and the use of negative self -talk and coping self-talk was strongly associated with age, work period, certification, and self-talk training. Seen from the counselors’ characteristics in East Java, although the use of coping self-talk was very strong, negative self-talk also appeared during the counseling process.
