    Workshop Description:
    Since 2003, the ASCA National Model has worked to transform our profession - but did you know that school counselors of Illinois had been implementing working on comprehensive school counseling since the early 90s?  This year, ASCA has taken the next step in ensuring that our profession stays relevant and pertinent to the lives of students and families by rolling out the 4th Edition of the National Model. This workshop will explore the many important changes in ASCA Model 4.0 so that you can continue (or begin!) to be a leader in your school and district with the most current language and knowledge.  The 4.0 model will also be cross-walked alongside the Developmental Counseling Model for Illinois Schools 2018 Edition to provide numerous resources and examples for first year counselors and long time veterans alike!

    Presented through support from Universal Technical Institute

    Workshop Description:

    MTSS from a Social-Emotional perspective : How Evidence-Based Interventions Across Domains can Promote Positive Student Outcomes - This 6-hour workshop will provide school counselors with an evidence-based framework for organizing data-driven, comprehensive school counseling interventions across the three levels of the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).  School counselors will learn apply process and logic modeling to develop school counseling program goals, organize interventions, identify assessment points, and plan intervention evaluation.  A variety of evidenced-based strategies that result in positive student outcomes will be reviewed.  Participants will leave with a framework and strategies for shifting their program delivery away from reactionary, referral-driven services and toward preventative, data-driven services that maximize student achievement and prepare students for postsecondary success.

    Workshop Description: 

    Helping Students with Trauma and Emotional Dysregulation 

    Counselors work daily with students who are unable to regulate their emotions. Trauma and ACE’s are a large part of this epidemic and based on brain research, this workshop will help counselors learn how to identify triggers, teach effective coping strategies, and help students go from debilitated to empowered.

    15-Minute Counseling Techniques that Work: What You Didn’t Learn in Grad School

    Feel like you don’t have enough time to do counseling? Participants will learn 15 counseling techniques that can be implemented in less than 15 minutes from when a student walks into your office. The program can be suited to elementary, middle, or high school counselors (or a combination of all) and participants will not only learn the strategies but will be doing them alongside Allison as she teaches how to implement them. Get out your Play-Doh! This hands-on, experiential program will revolutionize your counseling department and help kids leave feeling empowered.
