Comprehensive Guidance Programs that Work-II.
Gysbers, Norman; Henderson, Patricia
Comprehensive guidance programs are gaining increased attention. Aspects of these guidance programs were outlined in 1994 in a well-received book, which now has been updated. This new edition offers both the innovative concept (comprehensive school guidance program model) and the practical application of the concept as it has been applied in 14 different school and state settings. The practical reports were written by professionals who have extensive experience with the program. Although the chapters are specific to the school, district or state plan of each contributor, all of the programs are grounded in the concepts refined by the book's editors. The first chapter provides an overview of the comprehensive guidance model, a model which had its genesis in the early 1970s. The states represented by these program models include Missouri, Utah, Texas, South Carolina, Nebraska, Arizona, Maryland, and New Hampshire. This new edition also includes some refined theoretical points, including new material on leadership and supervision of school counselors in comprehensive guidance programs and the evaluation of comprehensive guidance programs. The last chapter offers key points, such as the importance of a team approach, for those who wish to develop and implement a comprehensive guidance program. (RJM)
