This study aimed at investigating the appropriateness of some counselling strategies against terrorism in Akwa Ibom State. A sample of 120 Guidance Counsellors was drawn from Akwa Ibom State Chapter of the Counselling Association of Nigeria. The design of the study was ex-post-facto. Two hypotheses were raised as guide to the study. A structured questionnaire entitled Counselling Terrorism (COT) was designed and used for data collection. The instrument was subjected to various processes of validation. The internal consistency of the instrument was established through pilot testing and it yielded a Cronbach Alpha coefficient of 0.82. Data raised were analyzed using simple percentage and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The result showed that parent training in child management is the promising family intervention strategy. It was recommended that there should be training in behaviour modification strategies which include the use of rewards, punishment and communication skills.
