in what class helping skills were discussed as
at least one part of the course. Finally, due to
the researchers' previous time as professionals
in residence life, their feelings about the importance of helping skills for housing professionals may have impacted their synthesis of
the topic and information.
Future research in this area should include
a national survey of SHOs as well as mid-level
housing professionals to determine the readiness of entry-level housing professionals in the
area of helping skills. In addition, a phenomenological study should be conducted with
entry-level housing professionals to determine
whether or not they perceive themselves as
being adequately prepared to fulfill their job
responsibilities. Included in this study should
be an exploration of education and training.
It would also be beneficial to research how
helping skills are taught within graduate programs, as detailed by graduate program coordinators. These additional research topics would
support the current study and provide greater
insight into how graduate programs can better
prepare their students.
A proficiency in helping skills on the
part of the residence life professional is paramount considering the prevalence of mental
health issues on college and university campuses. Knowing that the majority of students
with mental illness will not seek professional
help, those who work in residence life, at the
ground level, must be equipped with the skill
set to respond to crises, conflicts, emotional
outbursts, and varying forms of stress. Further
exploration and research on the professional
preparation of entry-level housing professionals
serves as an important link to better manage the
mental health needs of today's college students.
