Preparing School Counseling Students to Aid Families: Integrating a Family Systems Perspective
Paylo, Matthew John
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v19 n2 p140-146 Apr 2011
In this article, the value of integrating family systems theory into a school counseling curriculum is explored. Some programs have historically placed school counselors in a difficult position by not adequately preparing them for the demands of incorporating family systems and community collaboration into clinical practice. The rationale for incorporating family systems theory, ethical and accreditation considerations, and three approaches to integrating family systems theory into a school counseling curriculum are addressed.
