Abstract
The World Health Organization (WHO) recently estimated that 450 million people worldwide suffer from
significant mental health problems [3]. WHO had earlier estimated that one in four people experienced
psychological distress that met the criteria for a diagnosable mental health disorder at some point in
their lives [4]. There is therefore an urgent need for trained helping professionals able to screen and then
provide help to individuals with mental health problems, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and
severe disaster-related stress. In response to this unmet need, the National Board of Certified Counselors
International (NBCC-I), an organization founded by professional counselors, is collaborating with WHO
to develop a Mental Health Facilitator (MHF) training program suitable for the training of mental health
facilitators all over the world that can ensure the availability of qualified individuals who can provide
effective, evidence-based and locally appropriate mental health care. This paper explores the role of such
mental health facilitators in the context of sustainable health in promoting mental health and wellness, in
providing crucial helping service and referral if necessary, and in being in the forefront in times of crises
and disasters.

Rezumat
Organizatia Mondiala a Sanatatii (OMS) a estimat recent ca 450 de milioane de oameni din întreaga
lume sufera de probleme semnificative în ceea ce priveste sanatatea mentala. OMS a estimate ca unul din
patru indivizi sufera de stress într-o masura care îl plaseaza în rândul celor ce pot fi diagnosticati ca
având probleme de sanatate mentala. De aceea este urgent sa instruim persoane care sa descopere si sa
ajute pe cei cu astfel de probleme. Ca atare, NBCC-International, o organizatie a consilierilor
colaboreaza cu OMS pentru a dezvolta un program de instruire a consilierilor care se ocupa cu
problemele de sanatate mentala. Acest studiu analizeaza rolul pe care acestia îl au în mentinerea si
promovarea sanatatii mentale a celor aflati în nevoie.

Abstract
Under guidance and with cooperation of NBCC-International, the Institute for Education and Sciences,
Lisbon, is developing the first Career Counseling and Management program incorporating GCDF
training in Portugal. Expectations for attractiveness and success are great, as the labour market in
Portugal is in need of innovative and proactive approaches to replace old placement practices.
Concurrently, there is the need to provide professional certification to all those interested in working in
this area but that currently hold a variety of degrees. The program will bring together a multidisciplinary
approach with emphasis on the practicalities of finding employment in a growing economy.

Rezumat
It is then ISEC's ambition to provide to all those interested access to professionalization in
Career Counselling and Management in Portugal, through the offering of a Bologna second
cycle program of study, following an international established standard, and thus similar to
others that might develop in Europe. Our students will be offered the acquisition of a body of
specialized knowledge, access to professional activity regulated by ethical and social
responsibility principles, membership in a professional group that will work according to the
highest standards of training and qualification, and they will be able to maintain a critical and
reflexive attitude toward professional practice.

Abstract
Counselling in Greece is quite a new profession, if we consider that the formal body, named Greek
Association of Counselling was founded in 1994. The purpose of the organisation is the development and
recognition of Counselling as a profession in Greece. Things have been difficult. Training is offered mainly
through private centres, offering counselling training in different approaches, for example, client centered,
gestalt, integrated approach etc. Some of these training programs are accredited through universities from
abroad. In the public sector fewer opportunities are offered.
Counselling practice is offered by quite a number of private counsellors. The Association counts 145
Members. Most private schools offer counselling and career counselling to their students. Many private
companies have Human Resource Departments offering training and support to their employees. In the
public sector there are quite a number of agencies, mainly through hospitals, that offer counselling
services.
Future sounds promising for Counselling in Greece: there is an attitude change regarding the easiness of
seeking professional help; more and more schools, companies, hospitals and other agencies offer
counselling services but most importantly, prevention through counselling is gaining ground.

Rezumat
Consilierea în Grecia este o profesie relativ noua, daca luam în considerare ca organul formal, numit
?Asociatia De Consiliere din Grecia? a fost fondat în 1994. Scopul organizatiei este dezvoltarea si
recunoasterea consilierii ca profesie în Grecia. Începutul a fost dificil. Instruirea este oferita în principal
în centre private care abordeaza consilierea din directii diferite, de exemplu consilierea centrata pe client,
abordarea structurala, abordarea integrata etc. Unele dintre aceste programe de instruire sunt acreditate
prin intermediul universitatilor din strainatate. În sectorul public sunt oferite mai putine oportunitati.
Practica în domeniul consilierii este oferita de un numar important de consilieri privati. Asociatia numara
145 de membri. Majoritatea scolilor private ofera elevilor consiliere si consiliere vocationala. Multe companii private au departamente de resurse umane care ofera instruire si sprijin angajatilor lor. În
sectorul public exista un numa mare de agentii, majoritatea în spitale, care ofera servicii de consiliere.
Viitorul suna promitator pentru consiliere în Grecia: se observa o schimbare de atitudine privind usurinta
de a cauta ajutor specializat; din ce în ce mai multe scoli, companii, spitale si alte agentii ofera servicii de
consiliere dar cel mai important, prevenirea prin consiliere câstiga teren.

Abstract
The paper presents the current status of the counseling services in Europe. The attempt to compare the
development in the various countries is not an easy undertaking because the institutional and
professional structures are differing from country to country. It is questionable whether they do converge
to common professional standards, or not. This refers to East-West differences as well as to differences
between countries with different welfare states or neo-liberal regulation models, or to differences due to
existing national professional protection zones. The existence of many different academic and noneacademic
,schools' may become an obstacle of the spread of a clear-cut practical concept of counseling.
However, the question is whether we need a ,fullly professional' approach in the helping services.

Rezumat
Articolul prezinta statutul curent al serviciilor de consiliere în Europa. Încercarea de a compara
dezvoltarea în diverse tari nu este o sarcina simpla deoarece structurile institutionale si profesionale
difera de la tara la tara. Este discutabil daca ele converg spre standarde profesionale comune sau nu.
Acest lucru se refera la diferente între Est ? Vest, ca si la diferente între tari cu sisteme diferite de
asistenta sociala sau cu modele de reglementare neo-liberale, sau diferente datorate zonelor nationale de
protectie profesionala existente. Existenta multor ?scoli? cu statut academic sau non-academic poate
deveni un obstacol în calea raspândirii unui concept practic clar al consilierii. Totusi, întrebarea este
daca avem nevoie de o abordare ?deplin profesionala? în serviciile de ajutor.

Keywords   vocational counselors, career counselors, counseling services

Abstract
One answer to the question of what should be the role of the employment counselor is to be found in an
interpretation of the kinds of roles counselors have developed out of their experience in making adjustments
and adaptations to the realities of their work and to the problems that they have encountered. There are five
interconnected functions in counseling roles which provide one with a useful framework for thinking about
counseling. These functions are: (1) teaching, (2) behavior change, (3) socio-emotional support, (4) decisionmaking,
problem solving, planning, and (5) advocacy. Each of these functions is discussed in relation to
public employment counseling, particularly experimental and demonstration experiences or projects dealing
with the disadvantaged. The analysis of the above functions has described three functions (behavior change,
decision-making, and advocacy) which fall within the purview of the professional counselor, one (teaching)
within the purview of the non-professional, and one (social-emotional support) within the role of the worker.

Rezumat
O problema importanta este aceea a consonantei dintre competentele unui consilier vocational si situatiile cu
care se întâlneste în exercitarea profesiunii. Exista cinci functii interconexate care configureaza un cadru util
în abordarea consilierii. Aceste functii sunt: (1) predarea, (2) schimbarea comportamentului, (3) sprijinul
socio ? emotional, (4) capacitatile de a planifica, a rezolva probleme si a lua decizii, (5) sustinerea. Fiecare
dintre aceste functii este analizata cu referire la implicatiile sale practice, mai ales în planul interactiunii cu
persoanele dezavantajate.

Abstract
The beginning of a new professional position and setting goals for the first year on the job could
represent the most important steps in professional development. The graduate is facing with a new
reality, a different work environment with fundamental differences between university and economic
realities of contemporary work life. In the context of lifelong learning society, despite the general
competences and professional expertise, building a career implies on-going training and commitment.

the first year, thoughts about quitting or staying at the first job, the emotions and feelings normally
accompanying the process of professional employment in the first year after graduation.

Rezumat
Debutul într-o noua pozitie profesionala si fixarea scopurilor pentru primul an de munca pot reprezenta

între universitate si realitatile vietii contemporane. În contextul unei societati care valorizeaza învatarea
permanta, în afara competentelor generale si a expertizei profesionale, construirea unei cariere implica
pregatire continua si responsabilizare. Lucrarea de fata îsi propune sa abordeze strategiile de ajustare la
specificul unui nou loc de munca, cu toate gândurile si emotiile care însotesc procesul de insertie
profesionala în primul an, imediat dupa absolvire.

Keywords   communication, conflict, interaction

Abstract
Communication is central to all interpersonal conflicts. Interaction with others both generates
conflict and provides the means to manage conflicts. Interaction between people creates the
opportunity for conflict between them. That is, partners infer that they are in conflict by observing
each other's symbolic behavior. Likewise, our intention to express anxiety, frustration, desire,
resentment, anger, and so forth with the other person is made known through communication. When
we confront conflict issues, they become explicit in the exchange of messages. Conversely, we can
attempt to avoid disagreement by maneuvering around sensitive issues by carefully controlling what
we do and don't say.

Rezumat
Conflictele personale sunt recunoscute, exprimate si, în ultima instanta administrate prin intermediul
comunicarii. Astfel, a decoda mesajul transmis de un conflictrepreziinta o premisa esentiala a întelegerii si a
minimizarii acestuia.

Abstract
Career development interventions are becoming an interesting asset for Romanian companies with a
vision for growth through investing in the human capital. Career development programs developed in the
US over the last decades have been proven to be a salient condition in attracting and retaining employees
and therefore in achieving success in a competitive business environment. By considering these career
development interventions whose success is supported by empirical data and by adapting them to the
Romanian socio economic realities, career counselors and consultants can support local business growth.

Rezumat
Interventiile în cariera devin un instrument de interes pentru companiile din România care îsi doresc sa
creasca prin investitiile in capitalul uman. Programele de dezvoltare în cariera dezvoltate de SUA de-a
lungul ultimelor decenii s-au dovedit a fi o conditie semnificativa în atragerea si retentia angajatilor, si
implicit în atingerea si mentinerea succesului într-un mediu de afaceri competitiv precum cel din tara
noastra. Considerând aceste programe care sunt confirmate mai mult de date empirice si adaptându-le
le mediul socio-economic din România, consultantii în cariera pot ajuta mediul de afaceri local sa
creasca.
