Preparing readers for real-world practice, THE TRANSFORMED SCHOOL COUNSELOR, 2e demonstrates how to effectively use theories, data-driven decision making, leadership, advocacy, and consultation to improve clients' scholastic achievement and foster social justice. Thoroughly integrating the ASCA National Model throughout, the book provides an excellent overview of how the school counseling profession has transformed to successfully meet the needs of 21st-century students. It challenges pre-service counselors to view their sphere of influence from a systemic perspective and develop awareness of the major societal and educational changes impacting the school counselor--including economy, technology, family structures, standards-based education, and diversity. Completely current, the Second Edition is packed with new case studies, data, and illustrations, as well as expanded coverage of diversity and a new chapter on working with special needs students.

Carol A. Dahir, Ed.D., is an associate professor and the coordinator of School Counselor Education at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT). In addition to working as an elementary teacher and middle school counselor, she spent fourteen years as supervisor of school counseling programs and student support services. Since 1995, she has served as a consultant for numerous state departments of education, school systems, school counselor associations, and national organizations. As the project director for both the American School Counselor Association's National Standards development and Planning for Life (career development), she has focused her writing, research, and presentations on excellence, accountability, and continuous improvement for school counselors. A past president of the New York State School Counselor Association, she served on the governing board for the American School Counselor Association as a vice president for postsecondary/supervisors and as North Atlantic Region trustee for the National Career Development Association. An accomplished national presenter, Dr. Dahir is co-author of ASCA's Sharing the Vision: The National Standards for School Counseling Programs and Vision Into Action: Implementing the National Standards. She has collaborated with Dr. Carolyn Stone for three editions of SCHOOL COUNSELOR ACCOUNTABILITY: A MEASURE OF STUDENT SUCCESS (2004, 2007, 2011).

Carolyn Stone is a professor of Counselor Educator at the University of North Florida where she teaches and researches in the area of school counselors and accountability as well as school counselors negotiating the legal and ethical complications of working with minors in schools. Prior to becoming a counselor educator in 1995, Dr. Stone spent 22 years with Duval County Public Schools in Jacksonville, Fla., where she served as a middle school teacher, elementary and high school counselor and supervisor of guidance for 225 counselors. She was the 2006 president of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), where she is in her eighth year as ethics co-chair. In 2010, ASCA awarded her its highest honor--the Mary Gerke Lifetime Achievement Award. A past president of the Florida Counseling Association and the Florida Association of Counselor Educators and Supervisors, Dr. Stone has delivered more than 400 workshops in 49 states and 15 countries, and she has authored three books and dozens of journal articles. Dr. Stone's professional path in elementary and high school counseling, middle school teaching, guidance supervision in a large urban school district, and counselor education has equipped her with firsthand experience and understanding of all facets of the professional world of school counselors.
