Overview

Written by more than 20 experts in the counseling field, this new book examines the full spectrum of issues involved in the school counseling profession, with an emphasis on a comprehensive developmental school counseling approach supplemented by responsive interventions. Each of the contributing authors is a key practitioner/researcher in the area about which he/she writes; and, together, they advocate transforming the role of the professional school counselor from its traditional focus on guidance to a larger role that more accurately reflects the needs of today's students, educators, parents, and communities. The book outlines ten roles the professional school counselor plays in today's educational system and discusses becoming a competent multicultural counselor. It covers counseling individuals and groups, students with special needs, students at-risk, and students with mental and emotional disorders and examines the prevalence of such conditions in school populations and reviews the professional school counselor's position in regard to these children. For professionals in the field of school counseling.
