Lemberger, Matthew E.
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, Education and Development, v49 n2 p131-146 Fall 2010
The author introduces a humanistic theory for school counseling called Advocating Student-within-Environment (ASE). According to this theory, the student is an adaptive agent who operates within ever-evolving environments. With ASE, a school counselor can use the capacities of the student, the school environment, and their shared agency to promote wellness, justice, and development.
