School Welfare Co-ordinator and Counsellors’ Day Out: The Essentials For Filling This Role, Helping Students and Working With The School Community
November 18, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm$250
School Counsellors and Welfare Co-ordinators have a lonely and challenging role. In this session, for people new to the role or looking to refresh their knowledge, counsellors and co-ordinators will be given the opportunity to consider the issues of trust and confidentiality, referral processes, establishing the role within the school community, dealing with the broader staff and school administration, mandatory reporting, maintaining and storing adequate records, and developing supportive relationships with other agencies. Meeting with other school counsellors will provide the opportunity to begin developing a supportive network of like-minded workers.
