Bryan Hill 's Counseling Program
The School Counseling Program at Bryan Hill focuses on providing students the opportunity to learn necessary skills (social, emotional and academic) for a healthy development and academic success. Below is a break down of the services the counseling program provides.
The counselor visits every classroom at least twice a month for a 30-45 minute lesson. Counseling lessons are focused on building positive peer relationships, practicing conflict resolution skills, and character education. These lessons are aligned with content standards based on the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance Program.
Students can be referred by their parents or teachers to work with me one on one. These sessions are designed around the individual student and what they need. For example, coping with the loss of a loved one, changes at home, behavior at school and academic planning.
Small Group Sessions:
Group sessions consist of 3-5 students who are working on learning the same skill or working through a similar life event. These skills include anger management, social skills, academic motivation and peer relationships.
When a student requires additional support, they are referred to the school team for an RTI meeting. The team works with the parent to set a goal and put in place interventions to help that student reach their goal. The team then monitors the student's progress for a few weeks before deciding if the plan is effective or if the student may need to move into next step of support.
