Future Student Support Programs: Distinction or Extinction?
Johnson, Sharon K.; Johnson, C. D.
This chapter reviews changes for the future of student support programs identified and addressed by other contributing authors. It is proposed that without a blueprint of how the fields of school counseling, psychology, nursing, social work, and other student support programs will change to address the future, extinction is guaranteed. Changes already occurring that affect the student support programs of the future are highlighted. These include changes in the areas of local communities; computer technology; family structures; educational organization; the economy; and models of leadership. Finally, realignments of available resources must be evaluated on an ongoing basis to ensure the paradigms being used are delivering planned-for results in terms of academic achievement and wellness program implementation.
