This article explores approaches of constructive and effective collaboration among a school psychologist and other stakeholders in the education process. Effective collaboration among all stakeholders such as students, teachers, admins, parents, and psychologists is the key point to offer a “whole child” education. High motivation for learning, positive behavior, and excellent academic results greatly depend on the strong collaborative culture and atmosphere in the school building. The presented dialog of MSUPE professors and Dr. Cottle, who has many years of experience working in American schools as a school counselor, demonstrated main points of the counseling program via social-emotional support to students at one given school. This shared experience of the school counselor is an invaluable piece of information for Russian researchers, practitioners, and especially for new professionals. This article presents a dialog among three parties which invite a reader to explore this topic from the point of view of Russian and American professionals.
