Editorial Reviews

Linda Metcalf
"What a gift to education! By practicing the ideas in this book, school counselors everywhere can help create new descriptions and stories that will transform the academic lives and behaviors of their students. Not only will schools be practicing what they have been preaching in the way of promoting respect from their students, they will receive that respect back in return."
