Today’s children and adolescents are constantly facing new and unique challenges, and school counselors must respond to this by expanding their role and function within the schools. This revised and expanded edition of Thompson’s important text explores these issues, as well as the necessary steps school counselors need to take in order to adapt and effectively deal with them. Thompson advocates for the need for standards-based school counseling, outlining the framework and benefits of the ASCA National Model® and comprehensive guidance and counseling programs. She addresses the newest research in implementing evidence-based practices; the mental health issues that may be faced by children and adolescents; consulting with teachers, parents, administrators, and the community; and crisis intervention and management. New to this edition are chapters that focus on minority and disenfracnshised students and emphasize the need for school counselors to be able to advocate, coordinate, and collaborate on services for these students and their families. This is an essential resource for every school counselor in a time when the profession is becoming increasingly important.


"Dr. Rosemary Thompson's many years of experience as an educator, counselor, and supervisor of counselors is evident in this practical and contemporary book. In this resource that all school counselors will find useful, she offers sound suggestions for developing and maintaining a school counseling program that features best practices." - Theodore P. Remley, Jr., JD, PhD, Professor and Batten Endowed Chair in Counseling, Department of Counseling and Human Services, Old Dominion University

"[This text] provides readers with a fresh update on the issues currently facing school counselors, such as risk factors that interfere with child and adolescent well-being, the needs of diverse students and families, and the increasing mental health needs of students." - Gretchen Foust, DEd, NBCT, Assistant Professor, Counselor Education, University of Maryland – Eastern Shore

"This book is an encyclopedic compendium for school counseling for all who are involved in school counseling students--interns, residents, and school counselors. The school counselor will find this a go-to source when consulting with others in the community, to help show the connections of counseling with teachers, administrators, human resources, and other planning agents in the community." - Rosemarie Hughes, PhD, LPC, LMFT, NCSC, Dean Emerita, School of Psychology and Counseling, Regent University
