Designed a modified replication of A. Southworth's (1972) survey to identify any changes in the judged availability and desirability of skills among doctoral candidates for counseling center positions. 213 college and university counseling center directors served as the judges of the 26 skill items. Results indicate that on 12 of the items there was a significant change between the 1972 and 1977 surveys in the availability of skills; suggesting that in 1977 (a) directors were more concerned with campus-wide issues and efficiency of delivery of services, (b) the graduates of training departments had acquired significantly more skills than their predecessors, and (c) considerable discrepancy remains between availability and desirability of skills for college counseling center work.
