Counseling Skills for Teachers
Kottler, Jeffrey A.; Kottler, Ellen
Corwin Press
By necessity, today's teachers do much more than deliver instruction. In the classroom, on the playground, or even in the parking lot, teachers are often called upon to respond quickly and appropriately to students' social and emotional needs, drawing from instinct more than anything else. In this second edition of "Counseling Skills for Teachers", Jeffrey and Ellen Kottler expertly guide preservice and inservice teachers to be effective helpers in the context of today's most common challenges, highlighting issues related to homelessness, grief and loss, and bullying and harassment. The book also discusses: (1) Responding to a range of behaviors in formal and informal school settings; (2) Building a culture of tolerance and respect in the classroom; (3) Motivating disengaged students; and (4) Communicating effectively with counseling professionals and parents. With an entirely new chapter on "Counseling Yourself," the book offers teachers surefire techniques for taking better care of themselves and the students in their schools. Following a Preface and About the Authors, this book contains eight chapters: (1) Adjusting to Multiple Roles; (2) Understanding the Process of Helping; (3) Assessing Children's Problems; (4) Developing Skills of Helping; (5) Counseling Skills in the Classroom; (6) Communicating With Parents; (7) Consulting Effectively With Other Professionals; and (8) Counseling Yourself. An index is also included.
