Abstract: The purpose of the current study was to examine the school-based family intervention practices of school counselors at all levels. More specifically, this study was designed to examine school counselor's perceptions of: (a) current school-based family interventions, (b) preferred school-based family interventions, (c) limitations to providing school-based family interventions, and (d) appropriateness of school-based family interventions to the role of the school counselor. The secondary goal of the study was to examine the influence school-level and formal training have on school counselors' perceptions of school-based family interventions. A national survey of American School Counselor Association (ASCA) members was conducted. Surveys were sent to 900 school counselors and returned by 467 (52%). Descriptive statistics and repeated measures ANOVAs analyses were conducted for the total sample and subgroups classified by school-level and number of graduate courses in family counseling.
