Counselor Corner with Ms. Young

I cannot believe we are already at the end of 2022. This year has flown by!

The SEL and Teen Center services are coming to the end of the semester. After December 16th there will be a pause in services until January 17th. Any student may ask to come see me directly for support during this time.

Over the past month, we have been pushing into classrooms to discuss Anger Management. We used a video to discuss the A, B, C, D, E's of Anger Management. A is for being "aware" of their feelings and what is causing them to be upset. B is for "breathing." We take deep breaths to help calm our minds and bodies. C is for "counting," which we do between breaths to help us keep a smoothing pace. D is for "distance." If we are still struggling to calm down, we put distance ourselves from the situation that is making us anger. E is for "express" yourself. When we are regulated and calm, then we talk about the situation that was making us angry.

I encourage discussions about anger management to continue at home. I hear many students tell me that they have "anger issues." However, I stress to the students that we all experience anger, but we need to be responsible for how we express that anger.

If you have any questions, concerns, or have additional needs, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
