Abstract/Summary

This mixed methods sequential explanatory (QUAN --> qual) study was conducted to determine if counseling experience, counselor academic qualifications and counselor developmental level are significant predictors of counselor activity self-efficacy. A total of 86 respondents with varying counseling experience and academic qualifications were selected from the grade school, high school and college settings in Metro Manila using the purposive sampling method. They were asked to complete instruments comprising the Individual Personal Information Sheet, Counselor Activity Self-Efficacy Scale (CASES) and Supervisee Levels Questionnaire - Revised (SLQ-R). Descriptive as well as inferential statistics (e.g. Pearson r and hierarchical regression) were used for data analysis. Fifteen respondents with highest CASES scores, five each from the grade school, high school and college settings respectively, were identified for the qualitative component. These 15 respondents were interviewed. Integration of the quantitative and qualitative data reveal that counseling experience, counselor academic qualification and self-other awareness are significant predictors of counselor activity self-efficacy and its sub-domains. In particular, counseling experience and self-other awareness emerged as the best predictors of counselor activity self-efficacy and its sub-domains. Based on these findings, several recommendations for counselor education programs and future research are forwarded.
