The use of the generic term, value, in the title of this report refers specifically to an area of concern designated by a variety of terms such as belief, religion, and value system. Inasmuch as any reference to the terms belief and religion in the public school requires a consideration of the relationship of church and state. the intent of this study is to continue this inquiry in the relatively new area of counseling and guidance.

An additional concern of the proposed study was with some of the philosophical and religious implications of counseling theory. These implications might include consideration of the ultimate source of values for psychologists, the problem of maintaining neutrality, and the interaction of the beliefs and values of the counselor and the client.
