NATIONAL SCHOOL COUNSELING WEEK FEBRUARY 2-5, 2015
Counseling is a professional relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, and education and career goals. Using counseling theories and techniques, school counselors accomplish these goals by fostering educational and social equity, access, and success. The professional school counselor serves as a leader, an assertive advocate for students, a consultant to families and educators, and a team member to teachers, administrators and other school personnel to help each student succeed. Professional school counselors provide developmental, intervention, and remedial assistance through large and small group guidance and individual counseling activities, and crisis intervention to help all students. Please join the American Counseling Association (ACA) as we celebrate the tremendous contributions of professional school counselors.
