The Realities of School Counselor:
What you may not have learned during your graduate school program

This free webinar is geared toward current graduate students who are possibly considering going into the school counseling profession or for new counselors who have recently joined this wonderful career field. During our counseling graduate programs we learn so much information to help us become the best counselors we can be. However, not everything is covered and, for many, a one semester course on the actual realities of the school counseling would have helped tremendously when walking into their first counseling position at a public school. Since, creating curriculum for a course and implementing something like this into programs can take some time we felt that it would be beneficial to have a free webinar that touches on some of these topics and share resources that can help you before your first day on the job.
