For school counselors in training
School counseling students learn how to deal effectively with common, real life problems BEFORE they encounter them.
What is it really like to live the life of a professional school counselor? How does the theory presented in the classroom apply to the myriad of situations encountered in a real life, everyday school setting?
This guide helps counselors in training bridge the gap between theory and practice and lets them see how to theoretically frame or understand the problems and issues they encounter, how to proceed, and what action steps to take when they enter the field as school counselors. It’s the answer to the search so many beginning counselors make for concrete, grounded, real life examples of how to transfer and apply theory into practice, while developing the confidence necessary to do the job effectively.
In this book, case studies and scenarios give readers examples of many commonly encountered presenting issues. For each scenario the case is introduced, background information is supplied, and initial processing questions are included to aid in conceptualizing the case and taking related issues into account. The authors include a discussion of the theoretical models or frameworks used to address the issue, along with a table segmented by theoretical paradigm and grade level that includes other techniques that could be used in the presenting case. With these tools at their disposal, readers gain a firm understanding of the issues from several frames of reference, along with interventions meant to create movement toward a successful resolution.
