"Theory in school counseling has taken a back seat in the school counseling profession for decades. . . . It is my hope that with this new edited text by Colette Dollarhide and Matthew Lemberger-Truelove, two widely respected school counselor educators, pertinent theory in the field will gain additional traction and attention. Chapter topics are written by school counseling experts and the content is certainly germane to school counselor educators, students, and practitioners. I especially appreciate that the volume addresses salient current theories and models directly related to the profession, while retaining school-based approaches that have held up over time."
Christopher Sink, Professor and Batten Chair of Counseling and Human Services, Old Dominion University
"This school counseling theory text fills a giant need of helping school counselors understand and apply counseling theory in a developmentally appropriate way to children and adolescents in schools. Dollarhide and Lemberger's edited text beautifully connects the dots between theory, research, and best practice school counseling. This must-have text will make a very significant addition to your school counseling master's degree program."
