Small Group Counseling

The purpose of small group counseling is to complement and enhance student learning by improving their perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors.  Small group counseling provides a safe setting where children, along with their peers, can increase their self awareness and improve their cooperation and communication skills.  During the group process children learn from one other, giving them the skills necessary to adapt to life's changes. Every child can benefit from participating in a small group.  Students may become involved in a small group through parent request, teacher or counselor suggestion, or by the students themselves. 

Students are required parental permission to participate in all small groups.  Letters describing the group process, along with a permission slip, are sent to parents.  Students must return the permission form before they can participate.
