Foundations of School Counseling: Innovation in Professional Practice (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Cher N. Edwards (editor) & Mary Amanda Graham (editor)
This foundational text for school counselors-in-training is the only book to have chapters coauthored by counselor educators and practicing school counselors. It delivers easily accessible information based on a scholarly foundation of best practice recommendations from the field and research-based, data-driven content, including school counseling interventions, issues for professional practice, and a tool kit of helpful resources. The book is distinguished by its in-depth examination of the day-to-day role of the school counselor in elementary, middle, and high school settings-often a different reality than the recommended practice by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model-along with a commitment to cultural competency and social justice throughout. Providing a platform for the contributions of historically underrepresented voices, the text links theory and practice to provide readers with tangible and concrete strategies to implement. It covers the nuts and bolts of school counseling interventions including individual, group, classroom guidance, and crisis intervention. Each chapter begins with a K-12 student testimony to highlight the impact of school counseling interventions and to promote a better understanding of student needs. This strengths-based text also examines a variety of contemporary topics that strongly affect students, including an entire chapter on LGBTQIA+ issues and coverage of antiracism policies and virtual counseling. Additional features include Voices From the Field and Practical Applications that demonstrate real scenarios in practice. Instructors will also have access to the Instructors Manual, Test Bank, and chapter-based PowerPoint presentations. Purchase includes digital access for use on most mobile devices or computers.
