Family Counseling in the Schools. Effective Strategies and Interventions for Counselors, Psychologists and Therapists.
Hinkle, J. Scott; Wells, Michael E.
While referrals and collaboration outside the confines of the school are often necessary, the literature offers school counselors no guidance in the provision of family counseling services. This book emphasizes school counselors, themselves, working with families in the schools. A viable and dynamic theory of school counseling which is unique in its emphasis on doing family counseling in schools rather than relying on referral to outside agencies is presented. This monograph pays particular attention to assisting helping specialists to become more knowledgeable about, and effective in, using family counseling techniques and interventions. Chapters are: (1) A Systems Perspective in the Schools; (2) Systems Theory and School Counseling; (3) Training in Family Counseling for School Counselors; (4) Additional Family Counseling Approaches in the Schools; (5) Family Counseling Techniques in the Schools; (6) Family Assessment and the School Environment; (7) Special Clinical Issues in the Schools: Abuse, Anorexia, Substance Abuse, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and Antisocial Behavior; (8) Issues of Divorce and Marital Conflict; (9) A Family Approach to School and Community Crisis Management; (10) Getting Started with Family Counseling; and (11) Case Contributions from School Counseling Professionals. A suggested reading list of 46 books and 14 journals on family counseling for school counselors is an appendix. Contains 249 references. (JBJ)
