Abstract

This article presents a school counselling intervention that utilises letters written from the future. Few peer-reviewed articles have addressed the use of letter writing in a school counselling context, and none have focused on the use of letters from the future as a means of school counsellor intervention. The authors present a theoretical framework and specific guidelines for using letters written from the future in school settings. Case examples of letters written from the future are provided.
