Measure the difference you make in students' academic, career, and personal/social development!
Today's school counselors are under enormous pressure to document their effectiveness by using data and producing quantitative accountability reports—whether or not they've had the appropriate training. This authoritative guide from highly respected counselor educators and trainers gives preservice and inservice school counselors the tools to knowledgeably identify evidence-based practices in their field and to use data in designing, implementing, and evaluating programs and interventions.
Evidence-Based School Counseling provides a practical process for using evidence to determine three critical issues: what needs to be done, which interventions should be implemented, and whether or not the interventions are effective. Aligned with the American School Counselor Association's National Model, this resource offers counselors skill-building guidelines for:
- Selecting, collecting, and analyzing data for informed planning
- Carrying out action research and building collaborative partnerships
- Measuring student learning and behavior change
- Communicating results to stakeholders, and more
As counselors successfully incorporate data-based decision making and program planning into their work, they will witness positive academic and personal changes in the lives of their students.
