This text reviews the principle roles and functions of a contemporary school counselor, including counseling, coordination, collaboration, and guidance--as defined by the American School Counselor Association. Editor Christopher A. Sink introduces the subject in the first chapter, and each subsequent chapter is written by a specialist in the field.
Every chapter follows a standard structure that includes an introduction, rationale, and definition of the topic, as well as a presentation of theory, research, and practical applications. Ethics, law, and diversity are integrated as they relate to the subject matter. The final chapter includes information on the use of technology in school counseling.
