Calling All High School Counselors

                Hello my name is Nathan Underwood, I am a doctoral candidate at Northern Illinois University, and I’m conducting research examining the relationship between high school counselor role stress, self-efficacy, and wellness.  My study is called School Counselor Wellness as a Moderating Factor between Role Stress and Self-Efficacy. This study is an attempt to achieve a greater understanding of the experience of high school counselors, the effect on self-efficacy, and the influence of wellness on this relationship.

There are several potential benefits to participation:

•             You help contribute to the understanding of school counselors’ experiences.

•             You may identify areas of role stress in your workplace that can be remediated.

•             You will reflect on your own experience as a school counselor, thus expanding self-awareness.

                The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.  All information is collected anonymously and participants who fully complete the survey will have the chance to enter into a drawing for a $250 Visa gift card.  If you are interested in completing the study, it can be accessed at:

Please feel free to forward this email to other high school counselors who may be interested in completing the study.

Questions regarding the study can be directed to this researcher at or my dissertation supervisor, Dr. Charlie Myers at
