The Texas Model outlines a process for tailoring school counseling programs to meet the varying needs of students in school districts across Texas. With new organization, competencies, domains, strategies and tools, the 5th Edition of the Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs has been updated to reflect best practices and statutory requirements for school counseling programs. Whether you are a new or seasoned school counselor, a director of guidance, a campus administrator, or a counselor educator, this publication will help you implement the new domains and competencies for student success across all grade levels as well as identify ways to appropriately engage parents, administrators, teachers and your local community to support your school counseling program.
The Journal of Professional Counseling: Practice, Theory, & Research is the official journal of the Texas Counseling Association. Published bi-annually, the Journal of Professional Counseling is primarily technical and includes researched articles and news of interest to counseling professionals.
We are thrilled to announce that TCA has partnered with Taylor & Francis, legendary academic publishers to publish the Journal of Professional Counseling: Practice, Theory & Research beginning with Volume 45 in early 2019.
This new partnership with Taylor & Francis brings an exciting array of opportunities. The Journal of Professional Counseling: Practice, Theory and Research (and thus, the Texas Counseling Association) will have more visibility at the national and international level. This will increase our ability to impact the counseling profession. This partnership will also facilitate our ability to streamline the publication process while maintaining our high-quality publication record. TCA membership includes a subscription to the online version of the JPC. TCA members will also have online access to Counseling Outcome Research and Evaluation, Journal of Child and Adolescent Counseling, Journal of Family Counseling, and The Journal of Specialists in Group Work, as well as 20 percent discount off the price of any Taylor & Francis publication.
