dc.description.abstract Societal trends have given rise to examination of the relevance and accountability of the South African psychologist. Adjustments to traditional roles have been suggested by various authors. In this study, the point of departure is the actualization of adolescent development potential, for the good of the individual, the community and society. General systems theory provides the framework for discussion of the changing context of the secondary school, the adolescent and the psychologist. Accordingly, appropriate roles for the counselling psychologist in a secondary school context are suggested. In this context the counselling psychologist is seen to function as a facilitator of the exchange of resources, applying expertise which clusters in six areas: assessment, counselling, psycho-education, consultation, advocacy and research. It is suggested that application of these skills areas provides the psychologist with a flexible approach to school-based, preventive interventions, reaching more adolescents than is possible with the application of traditional models. In this way it is hoped to construct meaningful channels for the empowerment of South Africa's vulnerable young people. en
