Addiction in The Schools: Improving Training for School Counselors
This session will pose a change in the way substance abuse is taught within school counseling programs. School counseling programs should place more emphasis on screenings/assessment and brief interventions in training school counselors to match current trends. This session will emphasize teaching methods and content necessary for preparing school counselors to provide addiction screening, assessment and brief interventions. Identifying available resources will also be emphasized.
