- Can students overcome hardships with toughness to change, cope, and grow?
- What if those hardships are living in poverty, having endured sexual abuse, or the death of a parent?
School counselors play a crucial role in identifying students who have been negatively impacted by life experiences and promoting and teaching resiliency. Students can be empowered when taught resiliency skills to help stabilize their lives no matter what adversity they have faced or will see in their life. Counselors have a special position to help students build a toughness and an ability to bounce back and be even stronger than before with a little guidance and a positive school community.
