In The Press

“The broad perspective the author takes on types of education is a new perspective from pervious or existing works. Attaching standards to the ASCA Model is an important piece that brings a level of professionalization critical in today’s environment. Addressing all the CACREP standards also helps instructors include all important and relevant aspects to the learners. It addresses each level of school counseling which is important for programs that have only one course for school counseling. I also like the use of the term framework from which to work, leaving possibilities for school counselors to be creative in how they implement their programs.”
