Recognizing that real-world school counselor practice rarely fits into traditional models or timetables, Solution-Focused Counseling: An Evidence-Based Approach for School Counselors provides readers with evidence-based and effective interventions that work within the realities of time-limited constraints.

The text posits that school counselor need to employ models of service that are non-pathologizing in perspective, collaborative, and flexible in approach and which engage students’ strengths and previous successes in coping. It offers readers greater insight into the unique perspective and approach that is solution-focused counseling to help future school counselors translate the theory into practice. Each chapter includes a description of theoretical constructs supported by research, case illustrations, analyses of counselor actions and decision-making processes, and guided practice exercises to bring the material to life. Individual chapters address finding hope in the inevitability of change, scaling, creative adaptations for younger students, solution-focused small group and classroom application, and more.

A highly practical textbook with emphasis on application in the school counseling setting, Solution-Focused Counseling is an ideal resource for graduate-level programs and courses in school counseling, as well as practitioners within the discipline.
