School Counseling: A Scope of Practice for the 21st Century.
McCurdy, Kenneth G.
Little attention has been given to how school counselor education and professional training establishes competencies for which the duties constituting the practice of school counseling are uniquely derived. Furthermore, there is a dearth of information in the literature regarding how school counselor training, the national standards for school counselors and the national model for school counseling programs guides the practice of school counseling to meet the needs of the various constituencies in school settings. This paper focuses on the specific duties and services, commonly referred to in health related professions as the "scope of practice," that school counselors generally perform based on their professional training, national standards, and needs of the school community, within a comprehensive developmental school counseling program.
