School Counseling Series

School counselors provide critical services in private or public schools at all levels. They are uniquely trained to address academic, personal/social and developmental needs of all students. School counselors lead comprehensive guidance programs and provide services appropriate to the developmental stages of all students to maximize student achievement.

Recent changes in TSPC’s licensure rules have resulted in an increase in the required graduate level credit hours for many licensed school counselors. This series of workshops, classes, and programs are designed to fulfill the additional requirements and offer opportunities for ongoing training for school counselors.
