Journal of School Counseling, v6 n27 2008
School counselors are in a unique position to help at-risk students. Research indicates that teaching resiliency skills and emotional intelligence is a promising venture (Bernard, 1997; Chavkin & Gonzalez, 2000; Henderson & Milstein, 2002). Seventy identified at-risk seventh and eighth grade students enrolled in the Teen Leadership Program (Flippen Group, 2001) served as the population for this study. Initial analysis of the data did not reveal a difference between treatment and control groups. However, non-parametric tests indicate that the experimental group had a significant difference in office referrals. Findings and recommendations for future research are further elaborated in this study. (Contains 1 figure.)
