Highly Recommended Resources

The number of available resources on the Internet and other sources is enormous and diverse. Anyone who spends any time surfing the Internet is going to come across sites that are particularly relevant, meaningful and inspirational. The following list represents sites that have impacted us in this way. We highly recommend that you visit them.

Ronald H. Fredrickson Center for School Counseling Outcome Research and Evaluation (CSCORE)

CSCORE is located at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. It provides a wealth of information on school counseling research and has conducted major research studies to establish learner-centered programs within the purview of school counselors that are evidence-based.

Evidence-Based School Counseling National Conference

This website provides information about an annual conference focused on evidence-based programs and practices in school counseling. The site contains information on upcoming conferences along with copies of the presentations made at the conference in prior years. If you are looking for a conference to attend that provides meaningful linkages between the research and higher education community and PreK-12 school counselor practitioners, this is an excellent choice. We recommend that you submit a proposal to present to share your insights and experiences.
