Despite calls for a more preventive and developmental mode of functioning, school counseling has tended to be driven by a reactive and sometimes crisis orientation. Like social workers and school, counseling, and clinical psychologists, school counselors typically function to alleviate deficits, often in a small percentage of the students they serve. Although this orientation has served school counselors well in many instances, it is not empowering, it does not serve all students, and it does not replace those deficits with the type of positive characteristics and abilities that schools are attempting to develop.nbsp; nbsp; This is the first book to provide a comprehensive look at the theory, research, and intervention strategies that comprise a strengths-based, developmental approach to school counseling. In keeping with ASCA recommendations, the Strengths-Based School Counseling (SBSC) framework discusses academic, personal/social and career development outcomes forallstudents at the elementary, middle and secondary school levels. Other key features include: nbsp; Integrative Framework—SBSC builds upon contemporary research from a variety of areas: school counseling, developmental psychology, school psychology, education, positive psychology, resiliency, and social work. nbsp; Evidence-Based Interventions—Detailed examples of successful evidence-based interventions and environments are presented at the elementary, middle, and high school levels for each major developmental area (academic, personal/social, and career) identified in ASCA’s National Model. nbsp; Readability and Pedagogy—Beautifully written, the text includes lists of key points, tables of student strengths, illustrative examples, and student exercises.

Twelve Key Questions about the Strengths-Based School Counseling Framework
What's development and why is it a central theme of this framework?
Why is SBSC different from or better than the developmental approaches that we already have?
If I spend my time on all of the types of advocacy that counselors are supposed to be involved in, how will I have time for anything else?
Is SBSC another theory that I am going to have to learn?
We just implemented ASCA's National Model, how can we turn around now and implement Strengths-Based School Counseling instead?
How does Strengths-Based School Counseling fit with educational reform?
In order to do evidence-based practice, won't I have to stop doing something else?
How is adopting this framework going to help me deal with my students and all of their discipline problems and crises?
So if I am a strengths-based school counselor, do I just forget about reducing disruptive behaviors, attitudes, and emotions in my clients?
Is SBSC compatible with the CACREP standards, and do we have to modify our entire curriculum in order to prepare strengths-based counselors?
Is the strengths-based framework applicable by other professionals and by counselors in other settings?
Does SBSC offer a practical framework to school counselors, or is it passing fad?
