The purpose of this study was to investigate the perceptions of high school counselors and principals regarding consultation services in Georgia schools. The Counselor as Consultant Inventory (CCI) was developed to assess selected dimensions of consultation services. Subjects for the study were selected by stratified random sampling techniques. Data were collected by the survey method. Frequency analysis and the t-test for independent samples were used in analyzing the data.
Results suggested that there was no statistically significant difference in the perceptions of secondary school counselors and principals relative to counselors as consultants with principals, parents, support staff members, and community agencies. However, the data indicated a significant difference in the perceptions of counselors and principals relative to consultation services with teachers and counselors functioning in traditional roles. Secondary school principals were more in favor of counselors as consultants wi th teachers than were secondary school counselors. In addition, secondary school principals were more supportive of secondary school counselors in traditional roles than were secondary school counselors themselves.
