School Counseling in the 21st Century brings the theoretical aspects of school counseling to life. As they move through the book, school counselors in training will begin to identify and develop the significant pieces of a comprehensive school counseling program. They will also experience, through real and relevant case studies, how school counselors are using technology, assessment data, and leadership skills to implement effective programs aimed at serving their students. Each chapter reflects on how the national model for school counseling, standards of practice, multicultural skills, and ethical guidelines are the foundation of building comprehensive programs. School Counseling in the 21st Century comprehensively addresses the 2016 CACREP Standards: the beginning of each chapter outlines which core and school counseling standards are addressed, and chapters support CACREP’s requirement for material on multicultural counseling, ultimately enhancing readers’ knowledge and effectiveness in working with diverse populations.
