Classroom counseling consists of structured lessons designed to help ALL students attain the desired competencies and to provide ALL students with the knowledge, attitudes and skills appropriate for their developmental level. The school counseling core curriculum is delivered throughout the school’s overall curriculum and is systematically presented by school counselors.
Group counseling, which involves a number of students working on shared tasks and developing supportive relationships in a group setting, is an efficient, effective and positive way of providing direct service to students with academic, career and social/emotional developmental issues and situational concerns. Group counseling makes it possible for more students to achieve healthier personal adjustment, cope with the stress of a rapidly changing and complex environment and learn to communicate and cooperate with others.
School counselors coordinate ongoing systemic activities designed to assist students in establishing personal goals.
Individual counseling is a short-term, solution-focused intervention designed to
meet students’ needs and concerns. Referrals can be provided to families in need of long-term support.
