School-based services help improve students’ attendance, classroom behavior, and academic performance. Our school-based clinicians listen, guide, and encourage students while advocating on their behalf. Clinicians facilitate individual, group, and family counseling sessions, and collaborate with teachers and school staff to develop the tools to recognize and address effects of trauma that might be misunderstood as misbehavior, acting out, or simply “being bad”. Our school-based clinicians view themselves as one component of a larger team comprised of families, teachers, administrators, and support staff working together to meet students’ behavioral health needs.
