Owens, Delila; Pernice-Duca, Francesca; Thomas, Diana
Journal of School Counseling, v7 n17 2009
In this study, the post-training needs of urban high school counselors were explored. A total of 55 high school counselors completed a questionnaire. The counselors emphasized the necessity of supplemental training for properly conducting youth drop-out and violence prevention programs, effective services for underachieving students who consistently earn low-to-failing grades, and needs assessments analysis. Implications for counselor education training programs are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
