Professional Development for School Counselors: Enhancing Their Influence

Thumbnail image for 78449265888449.jpgKaren Seashore, (Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development), and Molly F. Gordon (CAREI) engaged in a professional development session with approximately 75 school counselors in the Minneapolis Public Schools. The session focused on how school counselors can enlarge their influence in their schools. The professional development stems from Seashore and Gordon's research on the role that school counselors can play in increasing student learning and success. Their book, Aligning Student Support with Achievement Goals: The Secondary Principal's Guide (2006, Corwin Press), outlines how school principals can better utilize their student support staff and align their efforts with achievement goals.
