The Bethke Counseling Program

    The counseling program is designed to help your child make the most of     his or her educational experience.  As your child’s counselor, I am                concerned about his or her emotional well-being, academic progress,          and personal and social development.

       The following activities are offered in the Bethke counseling program:
  • Group counseling to help students establish friendships, get along with others, and deal with issues such as anxiety, divorce, and grief
  • Solution-focused, short-term individual counseling for academic, behavioral and social issues
  • Mediation of conflicts between students
  • Consultation with parents and teachers
  • Referral assistance for families who are seeking counseling services in the community
  • Coordination of 504 plans
  • Guidance lessons in the classroom  (topics may include character education, bully prevention, friendship skills, problem solving, conflict resolution, career exploration, stress management, study skills, and personal safety)
