Boes, Susan R.; Snow, Brent M.; Hancock, Mary; Chibbaro, Julie
Online Submission
The need for well-trained school counselors is mandated both because of the types of 21st Century needs our school children bring to counselors as well as the numbers of school children that are on the case load of the majority of school counselors across the nation (Snow, et al., 2008; Boes, Snow, & Chibbaro, 2009). Developing similar curricula ensures the advancement of comparable learning objectives that are fairly consistent across programs. Curricula developed to meet standards both national and state, allow PSCs [professional school counselors] to meet the academic, career, and social/emotional needs of students (Boes, Snow, Chibbaro, & Sebera, 2008). While accreditation with CACREP [Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs] was not a central focus of this study, it is considered the basis for specialty programs, a powerful quality statement. Generally school counseling training programs, which have acquired accredited status, tend to graduate fewer PSCs and develop similar school curricula leading to counseling programs in the schools that benefit students (Snow et al., 2008). The production of professional school counselors in the North Atlantic region of the United States was explored. Discussion of the top producing school counseling programs in the North Atlantic Region of the Association of Counselor Education and Supervision is presented. (Contains 1 table.)
