Christopher Sink, Ph.D., NCC, LMHC, a professor of Counselor Education at Seattle Pacific University for more than 16 years, has been actively involved with the school counseling profession for almost 30 years. He has conducted small groups in K-12 schools and teaches the group counseling class. Prior to serving as a counselor educator, he worked as a secondary and post-secondary counselor. He has many years of editorial experience in counseling-related journals--including ASCA's PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL COUNSELING and ACA's COUNSELING AND VALUES--and has published extensively in various areas related to school counseling and educational psychology. A strong advocate for systemic and strengths-based school-based counseling, his research agenda includes topics examining the outcomes of comprehensive school counseling programs, research methods in school counseling, and spirituality as an important feature of adolescent resiliency. He is also the author of MENTAL HEALTH INTERVENTIONS FOR SCHOOL COUNSELORS (Brooks/Cole, 2011). Dr. Sink has a three-year visiting professor/scholar appointment in the Faculty of Education and Theology, York St John University, York, England.
