Top Tools for Today’s School Counselors

School counselors, school social workers, school psychologists: we see you, and all the amazing support you provide for students.

At times, you are asked to do more than for what you’ve been trained.

And because of that, you may feel ill-equipped for what your role has become.

If you’re feeling overextended and exhausted, we can help.

After listening and learning what counselors need (besides hugs and chocolate), we’ve created this course just for you, with practical and timely topics. Here’s a list:

  • Facilitating difficult conversations
  • Brain-science-based study strategies
  • “In the moment” responses to hate speech and actions
  • Student engagement
  • Goal setting
  • Ideas for collaborating after using a needs-based assessment
  • SEL-based responses to challenges
  • Resources for all of the above…and so much more!

Sold, yet? Here’s the description:

Perhaps more than ever, school counselors are essential contributors to a student’s support system. This course will allow you to build practical tools to serve you well in your ever-changing role. Designed for school counselors, school psychologists, and school social workers, the course explores the application of SEL strategies to support student challenges, how to solicit information to collaborate with teachers and families, along with brain-science-based strategies for smart studying. Create tools for teachers and staff to navigate tough conversations about race, gender identity, and how to take action against hate speech. You’ll complete this resource-packed course with the confidence to take your role to the next level of being an effective school counselor.

So please, allow us to support you. Check out course 5237: Tools for Today’s School Counselors.
