School Counseling in the Twenty-First Century: A Systemic Multicultural Approach.
Behring, Shari Tarver
School counseling educators and practitioners frequently find themselves so focused on the daily activities of serving their schools that rarely do they have the luxury of considering a long-term and large-scale vision for the profession. Yet a vision that anticipates the future needs of school counseling in a proactive manner is just what the profession must develop in order to survive, prosper, and be truly effective. Looking at the current state of school counseling through a systems worldview, it is noted that programs are often developed in response to problems, rather than proactively, and in isolation of understanding or involving the larger system that surrounds schools and that must be addressed for change to occur. This chapter proposes that school counseling, and the educational field as a whole, must move to an integrated, multicultural, systemic approach in order to truly attain large-scale, effective, and long-lasting educational and personal success for all students.
