Description

School counseling is one of the most rewarding professions on the planet, but also one of the most intense and misunderstood. Most school counseling resources continue to focus on ultra-filtered, perfect-world examples of school counseling instead of the raw, real-world realities of the profession we love: that’s why we created this podcast.The School for School Counselors podcast is for school counselors working their hearts out while fearing they’ll never meet the expectation of a “perfect” comprehensive program. It’s for school counselors who are feeling frustrated, discouraged, or misunderstood. And it’s for those of us who just simply LOVE working in and thinking about school counseling because we want to learn, grow and inspire positive change in students. If you’ve been looking for a circle of school counselor colleagues who just GET IT, and if you’re not afraid to be REAL about things like comprehensive school counseling programs, data-driven school counseling, and the joys and real challenges of the modern school counselor’s role on campus, you’ve come to the right place.

Advocacy From the Inside Out (And What Everyone's Getting Wrong!)

When school counselors are encouraged to personally advocate for their programs, there is a lot of well-intentioned (yet terrible) advice tossed around! There is an art to successful advocacy and negotiation. In this episode, we'll dive into the basics of quality school counselor advocacy that can develop the potential for HUGE changes on campus.

Your Data Does Not Define You
589

We hear so much about data-driven school counseling but very little about the realities of collecting data in real-world school counseling situations. If you've tried tracking aspects of your program but ended up feeling defeated, overwhelmed, or like you're just never going to be able to meet expectations in light of all the extra stuff you're tasked with each day, you need to give this a listen.

Hear an actionable plan for getting started in your data-driven journey as well as some perspective and straight talk about what your campus data is REALLY telling you.

Feel encouraged and empowered  to do what you can, with what you have, even if it doesn't fit the mold of a "perfect" program.  You're still making a difference each and every day.

Your Role Does Not Define You
494

School counselors are so often told what we "should" be doing and to advocate for our roles on campus, but we hear very little real talk about what to do when we're tasked with tons of non-counseling-related responsibilities and our advocacy efforts fall on deaf ears.

We are often made to feel as though this is reflective of our own shortcomings, but it could not be further from the truth!

School counselors are wonderful, driven, insightful souls who truly want to make a difference in the world. Listen to hear a different perspective on your roles and responsibilities on campus and why "less than perfect" circumstances are not a reflection of your shortfalls.

Feel encouraged and empowered  to do what you can, with what you have, even if it doesn't fit the mold of a "perfect" program.  You're still making a difference each and every day.
