Abstract

There were three purposes to this research study. First, the relationship between school counselors’ disabilities competence and their self-efficacy was examined through a correlation. Next, the relationship between school counselors’ disabilities competence and their pre-service training was investigated through a correlation. Finally, the predictive value of work experience, personal experience, training experience, and self-efficacy was observed in relation to school counselors’ disabilities competence through a multiple regression analysis. This dissertation includes an overview of the study, a review of the pertinent literature, a detailed description of the study’s methodology, an analysis of the results, and a discussion about the implications for the school counseling field.
