The challenge? At least one in 5 children in the United States has some mental disorder, but few schools have the infrastucture in place to help these children. School counselors can make a big difference. A study conducted by Dr. Randall Reback of Barnard College and Columbia University, showed that: Students in states with more aggressive elementary counseling policies make greater test score gains. Elementary counselors substantially influence teachers' perceptions of school climate. The adoption of minimum counselorstudent ratios reduces the number of teachers who report losing instruction time because they have to deal with student misbehavior. The adoption of minimum counselor-student rations reduces the number of reports of students who are fighting, skipping class, stealing, or using drugs. School counseling is in the midst of a transformation. School counselors and educational leaders need solutions for ensuring academic, college and career, and interpersonal readiness for all students. Stuart Chen-Hayes, Melissa Ockerman, and Erin Mason's 101 Solutions for School Counselors and Leaders in Challenging Times provides just that. In a succinct question and answer format, the authors provide affordable solutions to the increasingly complex systemic issues facing K-12 schools, students, and school counseling programs.

Melissa S. Ockerman , Ph.D, is an Assistant Professor in the Counseling Program at DePaul University. A proud Buckeye, she graduated with a M.A. in School Counseling and Ph.D. in Counselor Education from The Ohio State University. Dr. Ockerman has established a strong research agenda focusing on school counselor leadership, the efficacy of school counseling interventions and systemic anti-bullying and school safety strategies. She appeared before the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington, DC to discuss bipartisan anti-violence policies. She is a frequent presenter at local, state, and national conferences. In 2012, she was named the Illinois Counselor Educator of the Year. Dr. Ockerman currently holds executive positions in national and state professional organizations, including Co-Chair of the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES) Transformed School Counseling/College Access Interest Network, and Vice President, Counselor Education, for the Illinois School Counseling Association (ISCA). Additionally, Dr. Ockerman is Chair of the School Counseling committee for the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance, a National Center for Transforming School Counseling (NCTSC) Counselor Educator Coalition fellow, and an Advisory Council member for the Evidence-Based Practice in School Counseling conference. Her passion for educating the next generation of transformed school counselors is matched only by her strong desire to dismantle the pervasive achievement gap in schools through innovative and effective evidence-based school counseling interventions.

Erin Mason , Ph.D., is a career-long advocate for the School Counseling profession. Erinrsquo;s accomplishments and contributions to the field derive from her 13 years of experience as a Middle School Counselor in her home state of Georgia.
