Resumen

The research reported in this article explores the attitudes of counselors in training in three North American universities towards the use of psychotropic medication in counseling settings. Furthermore, their basic knowledge on psychotropic medication is assessed throughout a simple multiple-choice test. It is argued that despite the acceptance of the benefits of training in this area, counselors lack basic knowledge in the use and limitations of psychotropic medication. Curriculum implications of the findings for counselors in training are discussed.
