Evidence-Based School Counseling presents a unique method for training graduate students to become effective school counselors that is presented in a "Tell, Show, Do, Coach" approach to instruction and reflective of ASCA, CACREP, and CAEP standards. This method is based on three interrelated components: (a) the ASCA National Model, especially its Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success and its related student competencies, (b) the extensive research base associated with social/emotional learning (SEL), non-cognitive factors and college/career readiness, and (c) evidence-based programs tied to this research base and suited to school counselor implementation. The text highlights how the new ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success have been modeled after this research base and provides resources for school counselors to find evidence-based programs and interventions connected to this research. Evidence-Based School Counseling provides extensive practice and coaching so students can arrive at practicum and internship feeling confident, and they can hit the ground running as they start their careers.

Today's world is complex and getting more so each day. Huge multinational corporations, international crisis and fast breaking events require most people to make decisions on a daily basis without the tools to understand the long term impact that today's decision might create. Because most people have never really been trained in how to make important complex decisions most people rely on experience, and 'gut reaction' which is okay for many decisions, but not okay for decision that will have meaningful impact on organizations and individual. Decision makers need to develop the art and science of strategic decision making. Here, Professor Thomas Martin explains the need for decision makers to modify their thinking about how they deal with acquiring and analyzing information in each of the decision-making process steps. This approach requiring thinking modification will lengthen the process, make it more complex, and to some more arduous, but the comprehensiveness of the new thinking approach should lead to improved and more effective decision making. In this book, Dr. Martin presents a thinking modification framework that asserts that in the decision-making process, there are three situational states — a current state, future state, and a transitional state that one must deliberate in finding a solution. For each of these situational states, Martin develops an identical five-step process to determine the best decision to make. The steps of this process include: • Change-Needing Situational Analysis • Challenge Framing & Causal Analysis • Generating Solution Ideas • Choosing a Solution Set • Implementation and Aftermath Planning This book will appeal to decision makers, leaders, and students of management who want a specific framework that details the process behind making strategic, well-informed decisions.
