The 3Rs of a Successful School Counselling Program – Part 1 (2 days)

Relationships – Records – Referrals are the foundations of a successful and sustainable school counselling program. This two-day workshop will engage participants in the exploration of the ethical issues and the development of the processes that are critical to providing counselling services within the school setting. Participants will answer questions such as:

  • How do we as school counsellors track our diverse activities and the needs of students and teachers in a meaningful way?
  • How do we handle referrals from teachers, families and community members?
  • When and how do I best meet the needs of students through referral to agencies and other professional services?

The school counsellor is the cultivator of relationships and must often balance many diverse and often conflicting needs. Participants will explore the dynamics of relationships with colleagues, students, parents and community supports that are integral to their roles.
