Effectiveness of a Counseling Program for the Development of Organizational Citizenship Behavior Among High School Students in Bahrain

Abstract

Background: There is a growing need for educational institutions, especially middle and high schools, for organizational citizenship behavior. Schools, especially adolescent schools, have many behavioral problems such as; tardiness, non-attendance, vandalism, smoking, theft, sexual harassment, the use of drugs, the abuse of violence, impersonation, falsification, the introduction of devices that impede the educational process and other problems.
At least some of these problems may be due to the lack of organizational citizenship behavior among children, and students.
Objective: The present study aimed at developing and implementing a counseling program to promote organizational citizenship behavior among secondary school boys, in the kingdom of Bahrain.
Methods: The study used the experimental method. A sample of 40 secondary level students were chosen randomly. They aged from 16 to 18 years and were divided randomly into two equivalent groups: experimental and control. The counseling program consisted of 16 sessions; of 50 minutes each, with a frequency of two sessions a week. Data were collected using the Organizational Citizenship Behavior measure developed by the researchers.
Results: The analysis of the results suggested that there are differences between the experimental and control groups on all measures. Differences are mainly attributed to the counseling program.
