Who is this course for:
If you are a teacher, educator, school staff, faculty or administrator of an educational institution at any level, (or in any role where you work with students and parents directly or indirectly), this course is right one for you. Typically, you are the first to notice problems or be approached directly by a student needing help.
About the course:
This is a long-awaited course for teachers/educators who already do so much more than deliver instruction on subjects in classrooms. Come learn to integrate counseling skills into your daily teaching roles. Teachers are expected to respond to students emotional and social needs and have had to rely on their own abilities to do so as little training in this area exists presently.
This course is a training for teachers/educators to be effective helpers when confronted with common challenges in schools today. You will learn to respond to a variety of student situations and behaviors while building your skills to help students in need. Helping parents is another aspect of a teachers role and this course will help you improve communication with parents as well.
The purpose of this course
(1) to introduce you to basic counseling skills needed for responding to student’s psychological, emotional, social and developmental issues (2) to learn to identify students in need of additional academic, career or personal counseling.
We will obviously not create professional counselors in one week, but you will be better equipped to handle a number of student issues that arise in your daily work.
