Supportive Learning Communities and the Transformative Role of Professional School Counselors
Sink, Christopher A.; Edwards, Cher
Professional School Counseling, v12 n2 p108-114 Dec 2008
This article considers some of the key processes and methods needed to reenvision and transform comprehensive school counseling programs (CSCPs) as strengths-based, prevention-focused learning communities. Specifically, following a discussion of evidence-based "school as community" models found in the literature and how they relate, in part, to the American School Counselor Association's (2005) CSCP framework, professional school counselors are provided with effective techniques to assess student resiliency characteristics and enhance multicultural competency to support and maintain their CSCPs as caring communities of learning.
