The isolation of a child by his peers during his junior secondary school years may influence the child’s participation in school activities and this in turn may influence his overall performance in school and his performance later in life. To this effect, the study sought to investigate the effects of individual and group counselling on the adjustment of social isolates among secondary school students. The study was guided by five research questions and five hypotheses tested at 0.05 level of significance. A true experimental study which adopted the pretest and posttest only design was adopted for the study. A total of 20 identified social isolates were used for the study, using purposive sampling technique to draw subjects from 2 co-educational schools. The instrument for data collection was an 18-item questionnaire which was titled- Social Isolates Adjustment Scale (SIAS). The instrument was validated by three experts, all from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. The reliability of the instrument was determined using Crobnbach Alpha statistics and an estimated value of 0.83 and 0.85 were obtained for the two clusters. The isolates in the two experimental groups were pretested with SIAS before receiving appropriate treatments on individual and group counselling. After the treatments, SIAS was re-administered on both groups as posttest. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the five research questions generated while Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to test the five hypotheses posed. It was found that: there was no significant difference in the effects of treatment using individual and group counselling on social isolates mean adjustment scores, however, the two treatment groups had positive effect on the adjustment of social isolates as shown by their pre-test – post-test mean gain scores. Also, gender and location had no significant influence on the adjustment of social isolates. It was recommended that curriculum planners, educational psychologists and school guidance counsellors should plan a programme of intervention based on the principles of individual and group counselling training techniques for isolates in school; and the federal and state Ministries of Education should organize and sponsor workshops and seminars for educational psychologists and school guidance counsellors on how to implement individual and group counselling training techniques.
