Abstract

"Even since 2000 the explosion of social media would seem to have created a different reality for youth. In 2000, just 6% of kids indicated they had been a victim of cyberbullying (Finkelhor, Mitchell, & Wolak, 2000), but by 2004 the number had risen to 42% (Wolak, Mitchell & Finkelhor, 2006). Surprisingly, while the culture of today's youth would seem so vastly different from 1973 or 2000, the critical incidents that concern school counselors seem surprisingly similar. The 3rd edition of Critical Incidents in School Counseling includes similar themes to the previous editions: ethical questions, gangs, drug use, academic motivation, angry parents/families, and situations that don't seem to easily lie within the topics addressed by school counseling textbooks. Many of the elements of this edition of the text are also consistent with previous editions. Each critical incident is approximately the same length as in the previous editions and similarly each response is equivalent in length to the responses published in the previous two editions"--
