101 Solutions for School Counselors and Leaders in Challenging Times

By Stuart F. Chen-Hayes, Melissa S. Ockerman, E.C.M. Mason

(Grades 3 and Up) So much is expected to prepare today’s students for success—academic achievement, career and college readiness, emotional and social competency, to name a few. School counselors can make an enormous positive difference in children’s lives. Yet, school counseling programs are in crisis because of undefined roles, skyrocketing student-counselor ratios, and decreasing budgets.

Leaders and counselors must move away from outdated roles and embrace school counseling programs that ensure readiness for ALL students. In a succinct Q&A format, the authors provide school counselors and educational leaders with
  • 101 solutions to common counseling issues across the K–12 spectrum on topics ranging from data-driven counseling to bullying, collaboration, and equity
  • Stories of school counselors and educational leaders who have successfully implemented these solutions
  • Numerous print and digital resources for further exploration, including online supplements
Discover a wealth  of affordable counseling practices that make your job easier and more effective, demonstrate the power of a school counselor, and help all students succeed. Softcover, 376 pages.
