Summary
    Introduction to School Counseling: Becoming a Leader, Advocate, and Change Agent introduces readers to the evolution of the role and function of the school counselor and their emergence as leaders, advocates, and collaborators in the provision of quality and equitable education for all students.

    The primary goal of the text is to provide readers with not only information but inspiration in service of their developing professional identity as a school counselor. Each chapter opens with a reflection from a school counselor, which provides readers with valuable insight into the lived experience of the school counselor. The chapters also employ case illustrations and guided exercises to foster greater understanding of the profession.

    Dedicated chapters explore the unique dynamic and breadth of the role of the school counselor, how to advocate for systemic change within school environments, ethical standards and behavior, and multi-tiered systems of support. Readers learn how to assist those with educational challenges, address threats to socioemotional development, connect with parents and caregivers, and better understand the nuances and requirements for serving in elementary, middle, and high school environments.

    Introduction to School Counseling is an inspiring and informative resource for foundational courses in school counseling.
