The study sample consisted of 605 undergraduate students recruited from a public university. They completed three scales: fear of Covid-19, depression from Covid-19, and loneliness. The results revealed a good fit index for the proposed path model. The fear of Covid-19 predicted two types of loneliness emotional and social negatively. A positive association between depression and emotional as well as social loneliness was found. A total of 43% of the variance in depression was explained by loneliness. Depression was potentially a mediating factor between a fear of pandemic and the feeling of loneliness. A counseling intervention can be designed based on these results.</p> Yousef Abdelqader Abu Shind Muna Abdullah Al-Bahrani Hussain Ali Alkharusi Copyright (c) 2023 Yousef Abdelqader Abu Shind, Muna Abdullah Al-Bahrani, Hussain Ali Alkharusi 2023-08-25 2023-08-25 8 1 1 9 10.23916/0020230837510 Internal Locus of Control and Academic Self-Efficacy Influence on Academic Adjustment among College Students <p>Academic adjustment is a critical experience for university students in an educational setting. Students' ability to adjust with academic pressures will determine their level of success in reaching educational goals and academic development. As a result, it is critical to comprehend the psychological aspects that can influence a student's academic adjustment. This study examined the influence of internal locus of control and academic self-efficacy on academic adjustment among students at the Faculty of Psychology UIN Raden Fatah Palembang. This study involved (n=228) students selected using simple random sampling. The data was analyzed with IBM SPSS version 26 and M<em>plus</em> version 7. Internal locus of control and academic self-efficacy significantly contribute to academic adjustment (R<sup>2</sup> = 0.975). The increase in one point on internal locus of control and academic self-efficacy will impact academic adjustment. To improve students' academic adjustment, universities, especially academic departments, should focus on student locus of control and academic self-efficacy. They can approach learning problems better equipped and achieve their academic goals if they improve their internal locus of control and academic self-efficacy.</p> Nabilla Nur Auliya Zaharuddin Zaharuddin Kusumasari Kartika Hima Darmayanti Copyright (c) 2023 Nabilla Nur Auliya, Zaharuddin Zaharuddin, Kusumasari Kartika Hima Darmayanti 2023-08-25 2023-08-25 8 1 10 19 10.23916/0020230841810 The Developmental Trajectory of Teachers: A Theoretical Synthesis and Application to Counselor Education <p>Teaching is an important component of counselor education. However, there is a lack of literature exploring the developmental progress of counselor educators as teachers. In the following article, we review the research on doctoral-level teaching preparation in counselor education, present a synthesized model of teacher development informed from thirteen historic teacher developmental models, discuss our model in the context of counselor education, and provide limitations and recommendations for future research. Through this manuscript, counselor educators will learn the developmental trajectory of doctoral students and counselor educators. This will lead to a better understanding of the ways we facilitate and strengthen counselor educators development as teachers.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Jodi Tangen Amy Qvammen Runcorn Brenda Hall Copyright (c) 2023 Jodi Tangen, Amy Qvammen Runcorn, Brenda Hall 2023-08-25 2023-08-25 8 1 20 27 10.23916/0020230841210 The Aftermath Implications of Teenage Pregnancy on the Girl Child Education <p>The aim of the study is to investigate: i) impact of teenage pregnancy on the girl child attending government secondary schools ii) the level of academic accomplishment of the pregnant teenagers at the public secondary schools. The research design for this study was a descriptive survey. The study population made up of 800 teen mothers. A sample of 200 teen mothers in Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State, Nigeria, who had dropped out of secondary school as a result of teen pregnancies, was chosen through simple random sampling. The instrument utilized to collect the data was questionnaire which was administered to the participants, validated by three experts and its reliability was tested using Cronbach alpha which yielded 0.68. The participants were also interviewed. The data collected were analyzed using simple percentages. The results showed that young women who became pregnant while in school face a variety of difficulties, including early marriage, rejection by the family, disassociation from former classmates, social isolation, frequent absences following pregnancies, poor academic performance, and reasons for dropping out of school. The findings revealed that teen pregnancies affect the relationship of the girl child, family and peer group and also have an impact on young girls' academic performance in public secondary schools. We deduced from the literature review that adolescent pregnancy is a widespread problem that demands attention due to its effects on the education of girls. Some recommendations were also made.</p> Onoshakpokaiye E Odiri Oboawharhe Eloho Anthonia Copyright (c) 2023 Onoshakpokaiye E Odiri, Oboawharhe Eloho Anthonia 2023-08-26 2023-08-26 8 1 28 35 10.23916/0020230839610 Questioning Turkish Psychological Counselor Trainees’ Prejudices towards Some Clients: Reflections of the Social Context <p>The purpose of this study was to reveal the prejudices of psychological counselor trainees towards clients and the sources of these prejudices among a group of Turkish undergraduates in the psychological counseling department.
