Today's school counselors are under enormous pressure to document their effectiveness by engaging in data-based decision-making and producing quantitative accountability reports. However, the majority of counselors do not have training in these areas. Advocating for a shift from the historical best practice orientation to an evidence-based one, this authoritative guide from influential counselor educators John C. Carey, Trish Hatch, and Carey Dimmitt aims to help school counselors both preservice and inservice, acquire the knowledge and skills to make that shift. Detailed chapters and illustrative vignettes make practical the process of using evidence to accomplish three critical functions: determining what needs to be done, determining which interventions should be implemented, and determining whether the implemented interventions were effective. Additional topics covered include measuring student learning and behavior change, and communicating results to stakeholders. Counselors who successfully incorporate data-based decision-making and program planning will not only be able to document their work they'll be able to see the positive academic and personal changes in the lives of their students.

"The dual scenarios at the beginning of each chapter give a great visual of what an evidence-based approach looks like."
"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."

"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."
"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."
"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."
"An excellent contribution to the field of school counseling."
