Abstract: The purpose of this study was (a) to assess the relationship among Adlerian lifestyle themes and school counselors' choice to involve administrator or parent-guardian stakeholders when students present issues related to crisis or high-risk behaviors and (b) to assess the impact of lifestyle themes on school counselors' burnout. The Kern Lifestyle Scale, Stakeholder Survey, and Burnout Measure: Short Version were administered to a random sample of 800 school counselors from one Midwestern state; response rate was 31% (n = 249). A canonical correlation confirmed that there is not a relationship between lifestyle themes and stakeholder involvement. Multiple regression analyses indicated that 14.4% of the variance in school counselor burnout was explained by the lifestyle themes of self-esteem and perfectionism.
