This work is the culmination of nine years' experience in implementing Junior Counselor programs in two elementary schools. The book spells out in detail the steps in establishing a Junior Counselor program, likely problems and how to solve them, and testimonials about why this is so important: it improves students' performance and self-esteem, it makes true counseling possible for overworked school staff, and it connects the students as a community and the faculty as a valuable part of students' lives.

Hailed by educators as a breakthrough in the field of counseling, this has been adopted by school districts, with remarkable results. Children assume responsibilities at much higher levels of acceptance and competence, and become a positive force within the school system.
