Counseling in secondary education;
A comprehensive high school guidance program which includes developmental . and preventative classroom guidance lessons provides the opportunity for students to develop necessary academic, personal/social and career skills that will enable them to be positive and contributing members of society. Counselors today are spending a disproportionate amount of the day responding to students and others with complex issues and high-risk behaviors. Although classroom guidance is a recommended part of most counseling program models, the majority of high school guidance programs do not include classroom guidance opportunities. This paper reports the need for system changes which incorporate classroom guidance and provides suggestions for collaboration and scheduling that focus on the developmental and preventative classroom guidance opportunities in order to reduce the need for responsive services.
