This book offers counsellors specific ideas and strategies for doing a better job with outside-the-office encounters to positively affect the lives of all who come through a school's doors. The second edition addresses how increased responsibilities require counsellors to maximize their skills and effectiveness in all school-based encounters, regardless of location. Strategies are offered throughout the book for using "hallway" practice, or brief counselling, to make a significant difference in students' academic, career, and personal-social development.

"This second edition speaks directly to the reader and touches on the heart and soul of school counseling. It also provides innovative and practical ways to empower school personnel to become more proactive in communication and leadership." -- Jason M. McGlothlin, Associate Professor and School Counseling Program Coordinator
"As an educator, I certainly wish there had been a book of this nature when I first entered the profession 27 years ago! A refreshing, timely model that can assist educators in impacting the large number of students they serve, rather than the limited few who may actually seek out their services." -- Becky Brannock, Professor and School Counseling Program Coordinator
"An excellent resource that guides readers through the process of learning how to touch base with students in nontraditional settings." -- Tom L. Petit, Elementary School Counselor
"Quite simply a book that should be a part of every school counselor's library." -- Rebecca Powell Stanard, Professor of Counseling
"A must-read for all school counselors searching for methods to enhance the school environment and build a sense of community. This book inspires all of us to shift from 'thinking inside the box' to becoming more creative and ingenious thinkers." -- Nicole R. Hill, Associate Professor and Licensed Professional Counselor
"An excellent pick for education libraries, especially those catering to administrators." -- The Bookwatch, June 2008
