Reframing & Building Therapeutic Rapport Presentation

Session Description:

Are you struggling with staff members and parents who only want to "admire the problem?" This session will help you as a counselor build a sense of belonging in your school community for staff, students, and parents. We will work on how we can reframe situations to better serve our school community.

Thank you for Presenting!
