Individual and Small Group Counseling
Small groups occur as the need arises throughout the year. Typical group topics include divorce and family changes, grief, self-control, social/friendship skills, student success skills, and understanding and accepting feelings.
It is not within the scope of school counseling services to provide therapy to students.
Students who need extensive therapeutic treatment are referred to the appropriate outside therapist/agency. Once a student is working with an outside therapist/agency, it is not ethical for the school counselor to continue seeing the student for individual counseling. It would be appropriate for the school counselor to provide assistance if the student needs support for a crisis situation.
