School Counselor oles
The main activities of me being a school counselor would define the main content of this paper. The main aims and responsibilities of the school counselor is the main content of the paper.
The main responsibilities of the school counselor are to make sure that the students of K12 are guided in a proper manner. The kinds of guidance that are provided to the students include education, career, and future goals, academic as well as social competencies. Many kinds of interventions are used by the school counselors in these cases include the developmental school counseling curriculum lessons, annual planning for individual students as well as groups.
The literature has highlighted that some of the old terms that have been used for school counselor is guidance counselor or education counselor. But these days the term school counselor is more used based on the fact that the school counselor advocate for the….

What it Means to be a School Counselor
Careers in education are not easy, but careers in education are necessary and vital to the success of students. School Counselor is one of those challenging and necessary careers in education. It is a challenge to define what exactly a counselor does because a counselor does so much; it can be confusing as to when to the job ends. School Counselors, though, provide many critical services and serve as support to students and teachers alike. People can be school counselors and provide services at all stages of education. Most schools have counselors that have primary and secondary aged students. The School Counselor is not just for students who are having problems. There are a few parts or areas of interest that are within the purview of the school counselor that are related to the emotional and psychological health of students, without….

Counselors - from the perspective of English teacher Chris Sharpe
Although teachers in general need to be very versatile in the workplace, there are limits as to their influence over children. The fact that they need to concentrate on acting in agreement with the curriculum they are in charge of sometimes makes it difficult for them to concentrate on other aspects of the classroom. They are thus left with no alternative but to separate their times into several parts, with counseling actually being one of these respective parts. Even with this, their role means that they also have a limited understanding of the attitudes that a counselor needs to put across children in school.
A school counselor takes on a very general role in his or her field of work -- they need….
school counselor/School psychologist in the school?
The role of the school counselor is multi-faceted. As a counselor, I support a student's social and emotional well-being. While people might assume I just help students feel better or help them deal with personal problems, I also aid students when it comes to their career development and academic success. By following the ASCA National Model, I have gained an excellent framework from which I can assist students. The first thing I do is set up monthly and annual calendars ensuring I prioritize my time as well as meet the needs of the students that come and see me. It can get very hectic as I tend to a case load of 250 students.
How are guidance services or psychological services provided in the district level and school level?
They are provided by first doing an initial assessment and partnering with a local community health organization.….
People who work as school counselors are both counselors and educators. They have a very important role, and can be central in helping children and young adults with their academic interests and pursuits. They can also help to ensure that these young people are ready for college, even starting at an early age. Many people think that counselors only focus on college issues, but that is actually not the case. Their job is often more than just academic, as they work with career and social issues, as well as personal concerns, too (Bryan, et al., 2011). They are educators, but they are also counselors, and that means that they can counsel students on a wide variety of topics. Often, these topics are tied together because the student is experiencing something in his or her personal life or social circle that is affecting whether he or she is mentally and….

Attitudes toward the teacher-psychologist working relationship and the utility of advice on classroom management were most positive among promoted teachers, followed by psychologists, and then new and unpromoted staff.
The attitudes of the students are clearly of importance to the school health counselor and must be taken into account in both the consultative and counseling roles. West, Kayser, Overton, and Saltmarsh (1991) note certain student perceptions that inhibit counseling. It was estimated by the President's Commission on Mental Health in 1978 that 5 to 15% of all children and adolescents require some type of mental health service, and considering the number that actually receive help, there is a large population of troubled youth remaining unrecognized and untreated. One problem is that children and adolescents do not have a clear perception of themselves or of counseling and so are seldom self-referred. They are also frequently pointed toward counseling by an….

Masters Degree in School Counseling at Barry University
The Catholic intellectual tradition that Barry University embraces is the main reason I have selected the college as I pursue my Masters degree in School Counseling. That tradition has been cultivated for centuries with remarkable results -- results that have helped the world to flourish. It is only with the breakdown of this tradition in the social sphere that we have witnessed the disastrous crumbling of institutional bodies, the evisceration of social justice, and the abomination of desolation in our schools. Today's young people deserve a better and brighter future, and through Barry University I hope to attain the skills necessary to help guide them on their path.
It is the mission of Barry University to also assist its students in the path of reflection and spiritual enlightenment -- essential elements for intellectual growth and aspects of the education offered by the college of….
School Counselor Case Study: “Tami Smith”
The client is a 14-year-old ninth-grade student who recently transferred to this counselor’s school. The client’s former school counselor reports the family is severely dysfunctional, and characterizes both Tami and her mother as being extremely manipulative. Based on the facts outlined in the case study, this paper describes how Tami’s counselor should handle this situation.
What do you see as your priorities?
There are three overarching priorities involved in Tami’s case as follows:
Compelling this student to faithfully attend class and complete her assignments in a timely fashion;
Persuading Tami and her mother that a referral to the child study team is a prerequisite to Tami’s remaining in this school; and,
Formulating an efficacious counseling intervention that can identify major problem areas in the family home that are adversely affecting Tami’s academic performance and personal life.
How would you accomplish these priorities?
Accomplishing the first priority will require counseling this young learner….
Closing the Gap between College and CareerToday, college students face a world where inflation and political strife are up while earnings and life expectancy are down. Likewise, the continuing introduction of technological innovations and alternative working arrangements are reshaping the workplace while existential threats such as global warming, ongoing global pandemics and even nuclear war loom prominently on the horizon. As a result, selecting a viable career path against this backdrop is a challenging goal and an increasing number of young people are deciding that it is not worth the investment and are choosing to avoid college altogether. To determine the current situation, the purpose of this paper is to provide a review of the relevant literature concerning the changing purposes and expectations of completing a college education as well as the manner in which college students are currently selecting a professional career. In addition, the argument is also made….

School esponse to Student Suicide: Postvention
The emotional impact on family and friends following an adolescent suicide - and the school's response to a suicide - has not been the subject of the same level of intense research as have: a) the causes of suicides; and b) programs to prevent suicides. However, there is now an emerging body of solid research on what protocol a school can put into place, to be more prepared in the unfortunate circumstance of a teen suicide. Indeed, on the subject of tragedy, in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, many schools and communities re-tooled their crisis/response plans for dealing with such threats. And yet, in many ways, the sudden, inexplicable death of a student can cause serious psychological ramifications to fellow students on a part with the shockwaves following an attack by terrorists. And hence, this paper analyzes literature that is….

They predict age and gender variations relate to bullying concerns. Of the 25 cartoons implemented in the study, two depict characters with different shades of skin color where skin color appeared to be an issue. One cartoon relating to sexual orientation was not used in several countries. Smith et al. report Olweus to assert bullying to be characterized by the following three criteria:
1. It is aggressive behavior or intentional "harmdoing"
2. which carried out repeatedly and over time
3. In an interpersonal relationship characterized by an imbalance of power. (Smith et al., 2002, p. 1120)
In their study, Smith et al. (2002), participating researchers in the 14 countries to completed the following

School Counseling in a Multicultural Society: An Overview
More and more diversity is becoming the buzzword in society at large and within educational facilities across the nation. As the population in the United States continues to become increasingly diversified and representative of individuals from varying ethnic, socioeconomic and racial backgrounds, educators are realizing an increased need for attention to the specific needs of diverse student populations.
The need for multicultural competencies development among school counseling professionals has recently been acknowledged by the American Psychological Association (1992) and the American Counseling Association (1995) whose ethnical standards dictate that school counselors should achieve a certain level of multicultural competence prior to embarking on a professional career in student counseling.
Despite the acknowledgment of a need for increased awareness and training to ensure a positive student/counselor relationship, there is little evidence that much is being done in the way of establishing a core set of standardized….

School Counseling - Singapore
School Counseling in Singapore
In the article entitled, "Training school counselors in Singapore: first impressions of a multicultural challenge," authors ivera et. al. explored the history and current situation of school counseling in Singapore. In the article, the authors expressed the need to evaluate the kind and quality of training on school counseling in the country, which requires a culture-specific approach rather than implementing curricula and theoretical frameworks developed in the context and experience of 'western countries' such as the United States and European countries.
In determining this need and evaluating the current scenario in the Singaporean setting, ivera et al. conducted an in-depth qualitative article review of two (significant) studies conducted on school counseling, specifically in the Asia/Singaporean contexts. These studies were identified as follows: (1) E. Tan's (2002) exploration of school guidance counseling in Singapore, focusing on its history and eventual development into a "holistic model" and….
This is discussed at length by Fusick and ordeau (2004) "...school-based counselors need to be aware of the disturbing inequities that exist in predominantly Afro-American urban school districts, where nearly 40% of Afro-American students attend school in the United States" (Fusick and ordeau, 2004) This again places emphasis on the need for mental health programs in these areas of concern. This is also related to findings from a study by McDavis et al. (1995) Counseling African-Americans, which refers to research that stresses the "...widening achievement gap between Afro-American and Euro-American students." (McDavis, et al. 1995)
An important study Laura a. Nabors, Evaluation of Outcomes for Adolescents Receiving School-ased Mental Health Services (2002) refers to the particular issue and problems experience at inner-city schools. The author states that, "School mental health (SMH) programs are an important setting for providing mental health services to adolescents, especially urban youth who typically face in-….
