Introduction to Professional School Counseling is a comprehensive introduction to the field for school counselors in training, one that provides special focus on the topics most relevant to the school counselor's role and offers specific strategies for practical application and implementation. Throughout the text, discussions incorporate the expertise of both school counselors and school psychologists and offer methods of interdisciplinary collaboration, and there is a special focus on focus on advocacy and leadership within the context of a multi-disciplinary professional team.
