This research in education is focused on three papers which incorporate counseling principles, techniques, skills, and theory. The first paper is the author’s own personal view of counseling. It describes characteristics believed by the author to be found in good and effective counselors. The second paper is a comparison of the four stages of traditional counseling with the technique of Six Step Reframing by Bandler and Grinder. The last topic of study is a review of literature dealing with the counselor’s role within the gifted and talented program of America’s school system.
