Summary

This introductory text provides an overview of how the school counseling profession has transformed to successfully meet the needs of 21st-century students. The Transformed School Counselorchallenges pre-service counselors to view their sphere of influence from a systemic perspective and develop an awareness of the major societal and educational changes impacting the school counselor including economy, technology, family structures, standards-based education, and diversity. A full chapter addresses student diversity, including issues related to gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity and culture, socio-economic status, and ability and disability. A school-based scenario in every chapter asks students to consider contemporary issues such as closing the achievement gap and bullying. The chapter concludes with a response to this scenario by a practicing school counselor. Topics include using counseling, consultation, and the coordination of services to impact the climate and culture of a school; advocating a social justice agenda and promoting equitable access to quality education; and implementing accountable school counseling programs. Special consideration is given to using technology to efficiently and effectively expand the delivery of services and communication.
