Abstract

Social support is an important contributive factor to improve counselors’ performances. This research aims to analyze social support prediction to counselors’ performances at schools. The population consisted of all junior high school counsellors in Semarang residency. The sample consisted of 155 counsellors from Semarang, Semarang regency, and Demak taken by cluster proportional random sampling. Techniques of collecting data used performance and social supports of school counsellor performance with 5 answers. Instrument validity showed that 40 items were valid with coefficient between 0.221 – 0.738. Reliability test gained coefficient 0.926, meaning that the test was reliable. The data analysis used linier regression. The findings showed that social supports had various predictions to improvement of each counselors’ performance aspects. Specifically, planning actual performance was predicted positively by information and instrumental support. Meanwhile, actual implementation, actual assessment, and actual follow up performance were predicted positively by information supports and acknowledgement.
