Editorial Reviews

Review

"The dual scenarios at the beginning of each chapter give a great visual of what an evidence-based approach looks like." (Shawn Grime, School Counselor 2006-11-17)

"The move to evidence-based school counseling practice presents a daunting challenge, but the authors offer a sound argument as to why it must be met and then get busy explaining how to do what we need to do."
(Katie Gray, Director of Student Services 2006-11-17)

"School counselors and students of the profession receive specific guidelines and models for collecting and analyzing data, including tips on measuring student learning and behavior modification. An excellent guide counselors will appreciate." (California Bookwatch, August 2007 2007-10-12)

"An utterly invaluable guide to measuring qualities and situations that would seem at first glance to deny quantification. Highly recommended for aspiring and working professionals in the field." (Wisconsin Bookwatch, November 2007 2008-01-29)

"What sets this book apart from its contemporaries is that it is both comprehensive and practical. The book is well written, well organized, and easy to read. It not only serves to educate but, equally important, to inspire change, innovation, and forward movement." (PsycCRITIQUES, February 2008, Vol. 53(9) 2008-03-06)

"An excellent contribution to the field of school counseling." (Victoria L. Bacon, Professor of Counselor Education 2008-09-11)

Evidence-Based School Counseling: Making a Difference With Data-Driven Practices is a guide especially for school counselors, who now more than ever before are pressured to document their worth with data and the production of quantitative accountability reports. Chapters train the reader in a practical process for using evidence to determine the most crucial issues in school counseling: what needs to be done, which interventions should be implemented, and whether or not the interventions are effective. An utterly invaluable guide to measuring qualities and situations that would seem at first glance to deny quantification, highly recommended for aspiring and working professionals in the field.

This book gives clear and concise information on why we need evidence-based school counseling and how to use data to get there. Professional school counselors need the knowledge and skills to move from a traditional school conseling program to an evidence-based one and this book provides another set of tools to help school counselors achieve that goal.

The scenarios at the beginning of each chapter help to conceptualize how to move school counseling programs forward. Each chapter contains graphics to assist visual learners (like me) and highlights important vocabulary necessary for this important work.

Dimmitt, Carey, and Hatch are to be commended for producing this great resource that belongs in the library of every school counseling program.

This book is very in depth regarding using evidence based practices in the school setting for counselors. However I was disappointed because the tools used were more for guidance counselors then for school social workers like myself. My primary role is to provide counseling in both group and individual sessions that use data driven interventions to address the concerns of our students.
