Jeannine R. Studer's The Essential School Counselor in a Changing Society offers a practical approach to helping students understand the methods and standards in contemporary school counseling. Integrating the new ASCA model as well as the CACREP Standards across all areas of school counseling practice, this core text provides a unique and relevant perspective on the 21st century school counselor. Studer focuses on ethics and ethical decision making, as well as contemporary issues faced by today's counselor—such as crisis response, career counseling and advisement, group counseling, advocacy, and collaboration. The text begins with coverage of school counseling foundations, addresses intervention and prevention, and devotes the final section to enhancing academics through a positive school culture.
