    Social Work Department 

     

     

    The Social Work Department is the cornerstone of the intervention process.  We receive referrals from teachers and other school personnel as well as parents and students.  The referrals help us identify students who are struggling socially, emotionally, and/or academically.  We offer numerous services including:
     
    -  individual and group counseling
       (group offerings vary based on student interest)
    -  support counseling
    -  crisis intervention
    -  consultation to teachers and administrators
    -  assessments
    -  classroom presentations
     
    Through the above services we deal with:
     
    -  depression
    -  behavior changes
    -  substance abuse
    -  parent conflict
    -  stress
    -  alienation
    -  attendance problems
    -  drop in grades
    -  teacher/student conflict
    -  loneliness
    -  grief and loss
    -  trauma
    -  behavior management
    -  crisis situations
     
    By acting as a liaison for parents, we can also provide referral resources for students who need outside counseling as well. If you are concerned about your son or daughter’s behavior or social-emotional issues, please contact the social work department.
