School Counseling Renewal: Strategies for the Twenty-first Century.
This book supports the notion of the counselor as a professional who demonstrates an intellectual comprehension of the guidance and counseling mission. The renaissance counselor is defined as someone who charts a course that incorporates personal and professional development, and inspires direction, accountability, and responsiveness to students, parents, and community. The first chapter provides an introduction which examines the changing role of the school counselor. The second chapter provides a profile of adolescent health and well-being, and looks at implications for primary prevention and intervention. The third chapter discusses the definition and benefits of school counseling. The fourth chapter examines developmental guidance and counseling, and the fifth chapter discusses the school counselor's role in crisis intervention. The sixth chapter provides an introduction to the concept of school counselors as consultants. The seventh chapter addresses consulting with teachers and other support personnel, and the eighth chapter addresses consulting with families. The ninth chapter portrays school counselors as promoters of a more positive school climate. Educational and occupational guidance is examined in the tenth chapter. The eleventh and twelfth chapters discuss the role of the counselor in college decision making and in vocational planning for the non-college bound. The thirteenth and fourteenth chapters focus on program development and program evaluation. The fifteenth chapter provides tips for developing effective public relations, and the sixteenth chapter provides advice for time management. (LLL)
