Evidence-Based School Counseling presents a unique method for training graduate students to become effective school counselors that is presented in a "Tell, Show, Do, Coach" approach to instruction and reflective of ASCA, CACREP, and CAEP standards. This method is based on three interrelated components: (a) the ASCA National Model, especially its Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success and its related student competencies, (b) the extensive research base associated with social/emotional learning (SEL), non-cognitive factors and college/career readiness, and (c) evidence-based programs tied to this research base and suited to school counselor implementation. The text highlights how the new ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success have been modeled after this research base and provides resources for school counselors to find evidence-based programs and interventions connected to this research. Evidence-Based School Counseling provides extensive practice and coaching so students can arrive at practicum and internship feeling confident, and they can hit the ground running as they start their careers.
