Summary Too often school counselors find themselves stuck when they try to improve students' social and emotional health, or they react to problems that present themselves rather than preventing those problems before they happen. This book by leaders in the field of school counseling provides school counselors with: Characteristics and abilities of learners that promote effective academic learning and postsecondary success ; Understanding of how to intentionally develop these characteristics and skills in all learners through developmental programming. The authors take a fresh new look at the relationships between school counseling standards, school counseling research, and the best research on student success.
