School Counseling Outcome: A Meta-Analytic Examination of Interventions
Whiston, Susan C.; Tai, Wendi Lee; Rahardja, Daryn; Eder, Kelly
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n1 p37-55 Win 2011
The effectiveness of school counseling interventions is important in this era of evidence-based practices. In this study, Meta-Analysis 1 involved treatment-control comparisons and Meta-Analysis 2 involved pretest-posttest differences. The overall average weighted effect size for school counseling interventions was 0.30. The study examined whether pertinent moderator variables influenced effect sizes. The pretest-posttest effect size was not significant, so moderator analyses were conducted on treatment-control comparisons. Analyses of moderator variables indicated school counseling program activities or interventions varied in effectiveness.
