The School Counselor’s Guide to Multi-Tiered Systems of Support is the first to provide school counseling practitioners, students, and faculty with information and resources regarding the alignment and implementation of comprehensive school counseling programs (CSCPs) such as the ASCA National Model and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).
This innovative text provides a strong theoretical and research base, as well as practical examples from the field, case studies, and relevant, hands-on resources and tools to assist school counselors in comprehending, facilitating, and strengthening the implementation of CSCPs, particularly through MTSS alignment. Furthermore, chapters include pertinent information on the CACREP 2016 standards and the ASCA 2012 National Model.
This book is an essential resource for pre-service and practicing school counselors, as well as their leaders, supervisors, and faculty looking to better understand and utilize the overlap between CSCPs and MTSS, to strengthen school counseling programs to better serve students, schools, and communities.
