Abstract

This exploratory study examined 91 masters students' perceptions of their preparedness for counseling children. A web-based survey was distributed nationally to students in clinical mental health, rehabilitation, and school counseling programs to explore the students' desires to counsel children, their perceptions of their overall ability, and their theoretical preparations. Significant differences were found in the different groups explored. Implications for counselor educators, student preparation, and future research are discussed.
