This guidebook is part of a series of program materials for a school-based intervention process to help at-risk students stay in school. It is intended for participating adults and begins by giving them a quick look at the extent of the dropout problem nationwide. The booklet goes on to provide a discussion of the basic steps of the helping process, insights into the important roles and skills the participating adults need to make the helping process work, information about some successful model programs that use the helping process, and leads to additional resources that may be useful.
