This book is designed to prepare school counselors in training to become effective educational leaders, advocates and collaborators through exposure to current educational leadership and advocacy models and active involvement in relevant skill-building exercises. Counseling and leadership theoretical foundations are integrated with practical principles and skills. Reflective exercises provide students with opportunities to reflect on their own leadership qualities, beliefs and practices and provide students with an opportunity to practice key skills in the K-12 school setting. Case examples are provided to serve as a stimulus for student reflection. Students are encouraged to keep a journal of observations, key learning, and a list of student-generated topics for group discussions.Minnie F.
