Prevention Counseling: Prevention counseling provides children with school-based counseling services. We meet with children individually, and sometimes in small groups. Children are referred by teachers, parents and/or school administrators. These children often are having difficulty transitioning from home to school, especially if they are experiencing stress in their home environments. They need ways to separate mentally and emotionally from home stressors. In addition, prevention counselors help children expand their skills in naming and managing their emotions; this reduces the frequency and intensity of emotional outbursts at school. Behavioral issues are also addressed. All behavior has positive intent. By helping a child find an appropriate way to meet the intention, inappropriate behaviors are reduced or eliminated. Prevention counselors are also part of a child’s general support team in the school setting. Children need safe adults to ask questions of, problem-solve with, share feelings with and in general, feel valued by. Prevention counseling is a crucial component of a child’s social/emotional development. Counselors are also a resource to parents/caregivers, providing them with guidance and referring them to community resources.
