An anthology of intervention strategies that are rooted in scientific evidence supporting their effectiveness when applied to the day-to-day "problems" confronting today's school counselor. Every chapter provides a blending of theory, practice and guided, personalized application. The content is broken down succinctly, beginning with a brief introduction to the nature of the problems being addressed before delving into a detailed presentation with case illustration of the application of an intervention strategy. It is an excellent source for counseling techniques courses or as a reading assigned as part of their field placement experiences, as well as a useful reference text for all those currently employed as school counselors.

Richard D. Parsons , PhD, is a full professor in the Department of Counselor Education, at West Chester University. He has over 37 years of university teaching in counselor preparation programs. He has been the recipient of many awards and honors, including the Pennsylvania Counselor of Year award, and has authored or co-authored over 80 professional articles, book chapters, and books. His most recent books include Counseling Theory: Guiding Reflective Practice in 2014, Becoming a Skilled Counselor in 2013 (both with SAGE), and a series of four training texts for school counselors grouped under the title, Transforming Theory into Practice (Corwin Press). Additional recent works include Fundamentals of the Helping Process (Waveland Press), Counseling Strategies That Work!: Evidence-Based for School Counselors (Allyn & Bacon), and Counseling Strategies and Intervention Techniques (Allyn & Bacon). His current project finds him editing a 35-book series for SAGE Publications, 11 of which cover the common core competencies for counselor preparation as outlined by the Council for the Accreditation of Counselor Education and Related Programs (CACREP), with the remaining books targeting specialty areas.
