Have you seen this excellent graphic put out by NYU?

It was too good not to share…

Looking for ways to advocate for yourself and your school counseling program?

Check out the following resources:

I’m currently reading Trish Hatch’s The Use of Data in School Counseling: Hatching Results for Students, Programs, and the Profession. I’m not too far into the book yet but she talks about how she has worked hard over the years to advocate for the school counseling profession and how data plays a role in that.

I’d love to hear how you are advocating for your program. I just finished my first year at my new school and feel that this is an area I want to work on as I grow as a counselor and grow in my position. I hope to implement some of the ideas above. I really like the idea of doing a parent and/or staff newsletter. I am thinking about trying to send one out once a semester this year and then hopefully grow into once a quarter. What are your goals?

Thanks for stopping by!

I hope to share ideas, document what I am doing, network, be inspired, inspire, and collaborate with others through this blog. My professional portfolio can be found here: Thanks for stopping by!
