From one of the best-known authors in the field comes an important revision to a text that is transforming the way thousands of professional school counselors approach their work with students.

Transforming the School Counseling Profession provides a vision for how school counselors can effectively intervene systemically and personally on behalf of students. This edition introduces students to how systemic, data-driven school counseling programs are effectively implemented through important leadership, advocacy, accountability, and diversity initiatives. Students are introduced to important foundational issues in developmental classroom guidance, individual and group counseling, consultation, collaboration, and parental involvement, career and educational planning, and ethics and the law. Significant attention is also given to effective intervention with students with complex problems, special needs, and mental and emotional disorders.
