· Study examines student-to-student racial conflicts in schools, particularly the school counselor’s role, perspective, and experience of such conflicts
· We are interested in those situations school counselors approach or did not approach and the reasons behind these decisions
· We are also examining interventions used in these conflicts and the outcome of the interventions
· Experienced school counselors (i.e., licensed for 2-years as a school counselor in a middle or high school setting)
- Is able to discuss a student-to-student racial conflict he/she tried to address and/or an event he/she did not address
· Completion of a short demographic form (less than one page)
· One telephone interview which may take up to 45 to 50 minutes
· A brief follow-up interview which typically takes 5 to 10 minutes
· Little research attention has generally been given to racial conflicts in schools, particularly school counselors’ roles in mediating such conflicts
- We hope to learn more about racial conflicts in schools, school counselor approach to such situations, why they may or may not engage such situations, and outcomes when intervening or not intervening
