These insights into ABC provide facilitators, school counselors, teachers, and administrators valuable information on the constructs through which participant growth occurs and recommendations for planning and facilitating such programming. This qualitative case study examined the unique perspective for building a leader-member relationship between the principal and school counselor.Specifically, the case study examined the experiences of the working relationship of a principal and school counselor in a rural Midwestern elementary school.
Each student was interviewed about his experience in the group to assess the impact of the strategies and techniques used.

School professionals should be familiar with NSSI, how to identify NSSI behaviors in students, and proper protocols for working with students who exhibit signs of NSSI. The students were asked to imagine themselves in four different peer situations in which they were included, rejected, or ignored and indicate how they would respond.

Developmental differences and implications of the findings for counselors are discussed. Several themes emerged: defining personal growth, wellness, and clinical growth as a professional school counselor.
Strengths and weaknesses of the group were also assessed at post-test.
