Course Description

COUN 536i: Applied Theories & Teachings for Counseling in School Settings (3 units)

This introductory course is designed to expose graduate candidates to school counseling programs within educational systems. Over the past forty 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 schools 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.
