Many concepts in counseling and guidance that we tend to take for granted may be highly debatable rather than wholly acceptable. In particular, we need to take a fresh look at some popular ideas about objectivity, confidentiality, non judgmentalness, nonmanipulativeness, and computerization. This article suggests, not in protest nor in pique, that some reflection is in order.
