The purpose of this study was to examine the predictive value of counselor demographics, work experience, and training on counselor self-efficacy and multicultural counseling self-efficacy in urban school counselors. In addition, the predictive relationship between school counselor self-efficacy and school counselor multicultural counseling self-efficacy was examined. A correlational analysis was used to determine significance among the predictor variables and the constructs of school counselor selfefficacy and school counselor multicultural counseling self-efficacy. Several regression analyses were then applied to determine the predictive relationship of the significant variables and the stated constructs. Lastly, a regression analysis was used to examine the predictive relationship of demographics, work experience, training, and school counselor self-efficacy on school counselor multicultural counseling self-efficacy. Implications for counselor training and practice are provided, as well as suggestions for future research.
