Counseling Children and Adolescents in Schools
Practice and Application Guide

December 2011 | 128 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Counseling Children and Adolescents in Schools: Practice and Application Guide is an accompaniment to Hess, Magnuson, and Beeler's Counseling Children and Adolescents in Schools. Collectively, the set is designed to help aspiring school psychologists and counselors gain the necessary theoretical background and skill set to work effectively with youth in schools. The dual focus on school counselors and school psychologists provides students a broader view of the different mental health professionals in the schools, emphasizing on collaboration. This interdisciplinary set can be used across pre-practica, practica, and other school-based field experiences.

The corresponding textbook, Counseling Children and Adolescents in Schools (978-1-4129-9087-5), is designed for use in conjunction with the Practice and Application Guide. The textbook offers detailed vignettes, tip boxes, activities, and guided reflections to help students develop a more accurate and realistic expectation of school settings. Additionally, a unique and comprehensive chapter on crisis response includes topics from planning through practice.

Order the text and the Practice and Application Guide together using ISBN 978-1-4522-1680-5.

I find my students need additional activities to reinforce skill development. Workbook provides that additional skill support.
