Evaluated efficacy of short-term school-based counseling with 42 high school students by measuring pre- and posttest scores on self-report self-esteem measure. Found significant decline in self-esteem ratings after counseling in areas of social acceptance, job competence, and close friendship. Counseling students showed significant improvement in consistency between their adequacy ratings and their judgments about what competencies they valued. (Author/NB)
