Despite calls for a more preventive and developmental mode of functioning, school counseling has tended to be driven by a reactive and sometimes crisis orientation. Like social workers and school, counseling, and clinical psychologists, school counselors typically function to alleviate deficits, often in a small percentage of the students they serve. Although this orientation has served school counselors well in many instances, it is not empowering, it does not serve all students, and it does not replace those deficits with the type of positive characteristics and abilities that schools are attempting to develop. This is the first book to provide a comprehensive look at the theory, research, and intervention strategies that comprise a strengths-based, developmental approach to school counseling. In keeping with ASCA recommendations, the Strengths-Based School Counseling (SBSC) framework discusses academic, personal/social and career development outcomes for all students at the elementary, middle and secondary school levels. Other key features include: integrative framework?SBSC builds upon contemporary research from a variety of areas: school counseling, developmental psychology, school psychology, education, positive psychology, resiliency, and social work. evidence-based interventions?detailed examples of successful evidence-based interventions and environments are presented at the elementary, middle, and high school levels for each major developmental area (academic, personal/social, and career) identified in ASCA?s National Model. readability and pedagogy?beautifully written, the text includes lists of key points, tables of student strengths, illustrative examples, and student exercises.

Researchers finally have a resource that focuses on the research question, providing them with a unique approach that will help in the field. Key Ideas sections presented in each chapter act as an organising mechanism and look at the big picture of that chapter. Many of the writing activities are open-ended questions that allow them to write questions or what they are thinking about the topic at that point. In-Text Activities ask them to write down what they are working on, such as a research question, review of literature, or potential sample. Case study examples are also integrated throughout to demonstrate how decisions are made and how they affect everything in a study. This enables researchers to create the most effective studies.
