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.


Designed as an introduction to the school counseling profession, this book may also serve as a school counseling program development resource. Coverage includes historical roots of the field, ethical, legal, and professional issues, education and career planning with students, and parental involvement, as well as counseling interventions using expressive arts, helping students with mental and emotional disorders, conflict resolution and peer mediation, and multicultural competence. Appendices offer codes and standards. Case studies and vignettes are included to stimulate classroom discussion. Erford teaches in the counseling program at Loyola College. Annotation c.
