Beyond Guidance: Adventures in School Counseling
Profs. Maritza and Muna speak with Priscilla Grijalva about her school counseling journey.
We also discuss her work with REACH Riverside along with her experience being on the CASC and ASCA Board of Directors.
School counselors are tasked with providing strategies for all students including those who may be experiencing various types of trauma symptomatology. While there is a high expectation of providing quality care, there is a question of how well school counselors are prepared to work with those traumatized students. It is critical to understand the counselors’ perceptions of their preparedness to collaborate with them.
Best Practices for Trauma-Informed School Counseling prepares potential and current school counselors to manage the challenges and responsibilities they may face as professional school counselors in preschool through high school environments. It provides real-life examples and case descriptions as well as strategies for preventing and responding to social and emotional problems, improving educational outcomes, and providing an inclusive school counseling program.
