dc.description.abstractCounseling others can be stressful and emotionally draining. Therefore, counselors-in-training should strive to build effective internal and external coping methods to deal with stress and maintain holistic wellness. The proposed study was an exploration of a conceptual link between the constructs—specifically, the subscales and total score of counselor self-efficacy—using the CASES subscales and total score of emotional intelligence, SSEIT and total score of perceived stress, and the PSS in counselors-in-training. A series of Pearson correlations and a multiple linear regression occurred to address the research questions. Of the 135 individuals who consented to complete the survey questionnaire, the final sample size was 117. The Pearson correlations showed the SSEIT subscales were all significantly, positively related to the CASES subscales, and the multiple linear regressions showed statistical significance between emotional intelligence, perceived stress, and self-efficacy. The present study supports the importance of emotional intelligence and reducing perceived stress in developing counselor self-efficacy. Counselors-in-training need to enhance their emotional intelligence while working with clients to bolster their perceived competencies in counseling skills.
