New Resource for Canadian School Counsellors
The Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) in partnership with the Canadian Military and Veteran Families Leadership Circle have released a new bilingual publication for school counsellors in Canada. Part of a series of publications related to professions working with military and Veteran families, the school counsellors’ issue is the second in the series.
School Counsellors Working with Military and Veteran Families raises awareness of the important roles and unique lifestyles of military and Veteran families that enrich schools, communities, and workplaces. The publication assists school personnel in increasing their military literacy, and enabling increased support and inclusion of children and youth of military and Veteran families in the social, academic and athletic lives of schools across Canada.
This publication answers four key questions:
- What is the military and Veteran lifestyle?
- What resources are available to school counsellors to assist them in their work with children and youth of military and Veteran families?
- How can school counsellors promote mental health and advocate for students of military and Veteran families in schools?
- How can school counsellors support classroom teachers in their work with students of military and Veteran families?
