Preparing readers for real-world practice, THE TRANSFORMED SCHOOL COUNSELOR, 2e demonstrates how to effectively use theories, data-driven decision making, leadership, advocacy, and consultation to improve clients' scholastic achievement and foster social justice. Thoroughly integrating the ASCA National Model throughout, the book provides an excellent overview of how the school counseling profession has transformed to successfully meet the needs of 21st-century students.
