Schools in the United States continue to experience rapid growth and substantial changes. Some of the directional shifts in school counseling programs in North Carolina over the last 16 years, and new directions for these programs, are presented in this manual. It opens with an overview of the philosophy and history of school counseling in the state and some of the major shifts school counseling has undergone. The guide then explores comprehensive school counseling programs, focusing on their development and their role in prevention and remediation. Instructional goals for guidance, services and activities, ways to assess need, and desired characteristics of school counselors and staffs in a comprehensive school counseling program are presented. Section 3 focuses on the school counselor, detailing such factors as training and licensure, supervision and evaluation in administrative work, consulting duties, and program delivery. Some of the components of the school counselor's job are also described, including program planning, counseling, consulting, coordinating, student appraisal, and professional practices and development.
