new  DPI’s New School Counselor Orientation – If you are new to the field in the last couple of years, if you are working under a one year license with stipulations, if you are transitioning from community or higher ed counseling, this all-day session is for you!

The New to the Field School Counselor Orientation is an opportunity to learn and dialogue about important school counseling topics and best practices, network with other professionals new to the school counseling role in the last year or two, discover available resources and supports, and connect with the state school counseling consultant. Topics covered by the DPI school counseling consultant and guest speakers include: Suicide Prevention, ASCA National Model, Supporting LGBTQ+ Students, Social Emotional Learning, Compassion Resilience, Career Readiness - elementary through high school, Resource Deep Dive, Classroom Management Tips, and a BONUS opportunity to get answers to your most pressing questions from our professional panel.
