Guidance and Counseling Components

As a Brentwood counselor, my purpose is to meet all students' needs based on the Comprehensive Plan for Guidance & Counseling.  The Comprehensive Plan consists of the following four components:.

·       Guidance Curriculum - to conduct lessons about goal-setting, problem-solving, self-esteem, etc.

·       Individual Planning - to discuss with the student academics, career and college exploration, summer school, personal, planning, & setting  goals, etc.

·       Responsive Services - responding to crisis or loss, substance abuse, personal/social issues, school-related concerns, etc.

·       System Support - other duties such as attending staff developments, community outreach, parent education, coordination of services, etc.
