A New Typology: Four Perspectives of School Counselor Involvement with Families
McCarthy, Shannon; Watson, Dayna
Journal of School Counseling, v16 n1 2018
School counselors are called to collaborate with families to support student success and achievement. Although the need for collaboration is apparent in the ASCA National Model as well as research on family-school engagement, an organized view of what this collaboration between school counselors and families may look like and how existing or proposed approaches to collaboration impact school counselor practices is not available. The purpose of this article is to propose a typology for understanding ways school counselors engage families. This typology has specific implications for assessment, service delivery, school counselor training, and future research.
