Benefits of the Counseling Program:
"Empirical research conducted in the state of Missouri has shown that when school counselors have the time, resources, and structure of a comprehensive school counseling program in which to work, they contribute to positive student social/emotional, academic, and career development as well as the development of positive and safe learning envrironments. . .When comprehensive school counseling programs are fully implemented in local school districts using the Missouri Comprehensive School Counseling Program as a guide, benefits can be expected for students, parents/guardians, teachers, communities, boards of education, administrators, and school counselors" (Missouuri Comprehensive School Counseling Program Manual).
