Retno Wihyanti, Slamet Subiyantoro, Siti Sutarmi Fadhilah


The purpose of this study was to analyze the cooperation of teachers and school staff to help teachers Guidance and Counseling (GC) provide services. The Islam Diponegoro Primary School is one of the schools that has run advisory and counseling services and has a special teacher as well as service facilities. This is because GC services in Indonesian primary schools are mostly done by teachers in the class. The research method used qualitative with some additional instrument of in-depth interview and observation. The result of the research showed that the collaboration is an eclectic pattern, which is a combination of the three patterns of cooperation according to the theory used: GC teachers provide services and have special hours and rooms, but the classroom teachers also help and engage in GC implementation. Thus, this research can be a pioneer resource for other primary schools to streamline counseling and guidance services.
