Abstract

This study examined how school counselor trainees perceived their knowledge, confidence, and ability to implement and engage in the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model activities at their internship sites. In addition, participants gave their perceptions of duties/activities that are not part of the ASCA National Model such as non-counseling and case manager duties. Overall, this study agrees with previous research showing that school counselor trainees have the knowledge and confidence regarding the ASCA National Model; however, they were lacking the opportunity to implement and engage in some of the model's activities. Most of the participants were expected to complete the non-counseling duties at a high rate; even though, they were not exposed to these duties during their academic training.
