This article introduces narrative counseling concepts and techniques for professional school counselors. The authors provide a case study of narrative school counseling with an elementary student struggling with selective mutism. Examples also demonstrate how a narrative approach could be used at elementary, middle, and high school levels within various school counseling contexts, including small group counseling, classroom guidance, and consultation and advocacy. This article highlights the power and flexibility of a narrative approach to support students with a variety of needs as part of a comprehensive school counseling program.
