As the school year is getting into full swing, it's easy to lose sight of our 'why'. ASCA created this wonderful infographic that highlights the who and what of school counseling, which is a great tool for School Counselors in training and established professional School Counselors to use for advocacy. While it's great to know who we are and what we do, it's important to come back to our why, especially in our most challenging moments. Why did we choose to become school counselors? Why did we commit to two years of rigorous grad school? Why? Why? Why?
Whatever your why is, use it. Have it in your pocket to call upon as you face challenging assignments, struggle to find work/life/school balance (what is balance?), or a rough day at fieldwork this semester. You got this, and we got you.
P.S. We think that the infographic forgot to mention that school counselors are compassionate, helpful, generous, occasionally witty, and superbly good listeners. This is not even close to an exhaustive list...what would you add?
