From the Paper:

"In terms of additional skills necessary, counselors can help the school to improve the problem of chronic absenteeism by devising solutions that are based on real-world experience. The counselor should not think of his/her role as being inherently limited in this regard, but should instead think of him/herself as a dynamic and proactive facilitator of action in terms of providing solutions that are definite and immediate. One way in
which counselors can help the school to improve attendance is to take each case on an individual basis and work hard to impress upon the individual student how important attendance is to their educational and real-world future. Too many students are of the belief that their absenteeism or truancy does not matter, or are not aware of the serious
implications that it can have for their future in society."
