School counselors provide direct counseling services to students through school counseling core curriculum (classroom), small groups, and individual counseling. While school counselors work from a proactive, preventive model, they also provide response services and work together to meet students’ immediate needs and concerns. Responsive services may include brief individual sessions and/or small groups to target specific needs, or crisis response.
Indirect services are provided on behalf of student as a result of school counselors’ interactions with others. This may include referrals for additional assistance, community outreach, and consultation and collaboration with parents, teachers, other educators. Indirect activities may include:
- Community outreach
- Directing parents and students to school and community resources
- School-wide interventions & initiatives that improve school culture and climate
- Parent outreach & education
- Referrals to outside agencies
