Focus on How to Develop, Implement, Manage, and Evaluate a Comprehensive Developmental School Counseling Program
Focus on Real-Life Applications
Handbook of School Counseling emerged from conversations between two counselor educators. We had been teaching school counselors for over a decade and agreed with other school counselor educators around the country that we needed instructional materials reflective of the transformations that have taken place in the school counseling profession. The National Standards for School Counseling Programs developed by the American School Counselors Association (ASCA), school counseling specialty standards articulated by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), the expanded view of school counselors' roles emerging from recent reform efforts, and program models frequently adopted by state departments of education have all informed the content and structure of this text. The "Three Cs" model of school counseling (counseling, coordination, and consultation) has been updated and expanded over the past decade to include leadership, advocacy, and collaboration as primary school counselor roles. The addition of these roles, both in practice and in training, provides the school counselor opportunities to firmly establish links between the school counseling program and the total educational enterprise, thereby operationalizing the concept of school counselors working collaboratively with other educational professionals to maximize the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students.
Our goal has been to provide a book focused on teaching school counseling students how to develop, implement, manage, and evaluate a comprehensive developmental school counseling program that contributes to the mission of the school in meaningful and productive ways. To be successful ire this task, we have used the specialty area content for school counselor preparation articulated by CACREP and the National Standards for School Counseling Programs adopted by ASCA and integrated them with the widely adopted organizational structure articulated by Norman Gysbers and Patricia Henderson.
