Paradigms for Future School Counseling Programs.
To establish a context for envisioning the school counselor of 2021, it is first necessary to envision the public school of the future. In this chapter, a trend in which schools move away from large institutional educational structures, with an emphasis on redesigning them into small learning centers within the larger establishment is predicted. These smaller learning centers will operate more like the universities of today, with small departments having specializations and themes in different areas. Within this configuration, teachers, principals, and school counselors will assume new roles to facilitate learning. Within the context of these changes, the author suggests that the school counselor will undergo a major shift and assume key leadership roles in school reform, creating healthy school climates, and serving as an essential resource for teachers, parents, and community counselors.
