Building Stronger School Counseling Programs: Bringing Futuristic Approaches into the Present.
Johnson, C. D., Ed.; Johnson, Sharon K., Ed.
This publication brings together authors from a variety of fields to speculate about the future of counseling. Some believe that change in the future will be incremental and of a short-term nature, resolving problems as they arise. Others see transitional changes that will be orderly and linear, while still others see transformational change with great new patterns evolving. The book is divided into six sections: Embracing the Community; Counseling for Employability; Considering Multicultural Issues; Staying the Course; Preparing Student Support Professionals; and Riding Political and Technological Currents.
