This is an introductory course which provides students with an overview of the need, meaning, ethics, and scope of counseling services in schools. Students learn how to understand individuals and their needs--racial, sexual, social, developmental, and ethnic; to create essential orientation activities; to explore career goals; to collect, record, use, and evaluate programs; to understand the latest federal and state regulations applying to counseling programs in a school setting; and to develop communications and consultation skills with other professionals, the community at large, and clients and their families. Pre-practicum hours for Licensure are included in the course requirements. In an effort to ensure that school counseling students have experiences working with diverse students in P-12 schools,  students will now be required to complete at least 1/3 of their total pre-practicum hours in diverse school settings.
