Abstract : Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris
The purpose of the study was to explore the professional identity development of one distinguished   counselling  figure  in  Indonesia.  It  aimed  to  explore  the  aspects  that influence the  participant’s professional identity development. Besides, the study also aimed   to   identify    the   turning   points   of   the   participant’s   professional   identity development as well as  the phases connected to it.  This study employed a qualitative methodology using narrative  approach. The participants of the study consisted of two individuals, mainly the distinguished  counselling figure in Indonesia and one colleague who is connected to the main participant.   Face  to face interview, document analysis and  subject  journaling  were  employed  as  data  collection   methods.  The  data  were analysed using narrative analysis consisting of coding, organizing in a  time sequence, categorizing  according  to  place  and  issuing  themes.  The  findings  uncovered   the influential aspects based on the chronological order of time and places. It also revealed the  turning points of the participant’s identity development that consisted of 1) entry into the  teacher training school, 2) the entry of guidance and counselling in Indonesia, 3) the ability to consolidate the Western and Eastern counselling approach with local context and  4) experiences during study in USA. The findings also indicated that the sequential development of  professional identity of the research participant consisted of 1) constructing 2) developing 3) leading and 4) self-formulation. The findings provided several   implications  that  include  the  improvement  of  the  curriculum  design  for counsellor  education provider, personal and professional characteristics guidelines for counselling students  and  enhancement  of members’  post-formal education  for entry into  the  counselling   professional  organization.  As  a  conclusion,  the  professional identity of the distinguished  figure was depicted in four turning points and four chain of phases that can provide guidelines for  future coun  ellor educators that suit with the demand and needs of the local contexts in Indonesia.
