Centers In fact, the ratio of social workers to psychologists is by no means the predicament of the academic counseling center. The real predicament lies in the fact that the center has been in operation for ten years and is still tasked, which makes the organizational structure very loose and fragile. Moreover, the leading director of the center is actually produced in different ways throughout Taiwan. Regarding the difficulty and complexity of the decision-making of the academic counseling center, please refer to another article of the author ( response to the "Joint Love Letter of 13 Psychologists": Don't Just Give Moral Candy ─ Students Counseling Overloaded Social Workers and Psychologists teacher ).
But obviously this dilemma is magnified even telemarketing list more when the director's qualifications are not determined. As far as the current situation is concerned, the director of the academic counseling center is formed in the following ways: concurrently serving as an inspector (Chiayi County), concurrently serving as a section chief (Pingtung), concurrently serving as a principal (New Taipei City), serving as a candidate for the principal (Kaohsiung, Yunlin, etc.), Professional teachers (Changhua, Kinmen, etc.), specialized assistants (Keelung, Hsinchu), and even centers without directors (Nantou).
So many different directors will naturally affect the relationship and predicament with the county government/city government and the school. Also due to the looseness and uncertainty of its organization, almost every change of director will lead to a major adjustment in the way the center operates. There used to be a county and city that used the principal as the director, but faced frequent changes of directors who had experienced water. They left when there was a vacancy in the school, and they had no intention of staying for a long time.
