Organization of Student Support Systems

This introductory course is designed to expose graduate students to school counseling programs domestically and internationally. Over the past 40 years scholars and counselor leaders have championed the use of designing, implementing and evaluating comprehensive developmental programs within K-12 school counseling practice. Many benefits to students, counselors and scholars are associated with these programs. In fact, program implementation can be seen as the field's largest professional movement at the school, district, state and national levels. This course recognizes the importance of this content and seeks to expose students to programs early within their training as a way to organize other core counseling activities like individual counseling, small group work, classroom lessons, consultation and community outreach.
