This comprehensive, graduate-level text prepares readers to handle the problems and responsibilities they'll face as professional school counselors, from preschool through high school. It covers a wide range of topics in-depth, including effective interventions for racism and bullying, addressing the continuing score gap between ethnic groups, playing a leadership role in implementing school-based action research, and advocating for, and providing services to, children with disabilities. Packed with real-life examples and case descriptions, the book provides strategies for preventing and responding to social and emotional problems, improving educational outcomes, and helping children score at optimum levels on high-stakes tests.

Key Features

The book's focus on the consultative role of the school counselor includes ideas for developing a consulting practice within the school, for overcoming resistance, and for developing the flexibility to move to different school counseling venues, such as counseling in a virtual school.

A solid grounding in measurement and research helps readers develop the ability to interpret, evaluate, and explain standardized test scores and other data to colleagues, students, and parents. It also empowers the school counselor to take a leadership role in school-based action research and program evaluation.

Multicultural techniques for counselors, drawn from both current literature and the author's own experience growing up and later teaching in an inner-city environment, are included, along with techniques for assisting children with undocumented and language-minority parents.

In-text learning aids include chapter-opening introductions; chapter-ending summaries and discussion questions; chapter objectives; cartoons, photos, and tables; a complete glossary; and 39 Case in Point features that provide problematic counseling scenarios and resolutions.

The ASCA statement of Ethical Standards for School Counselors is reprinted inside the front and back of the book to provide a quick reference for counselors as they establish their school-based practices. These ethical principles are imbued throughout the book's narrative.
