10 BENEFITS OF SCHOOL COUNSELLING
Schools are not places where children are taught textbook lessons alone, but are places where children learn LIFE. Schools shape a child’s personality, intelligence and skills. But the increasing levels of competition and increasing load of academic curriculum has also resulted in many children burning out and falling apart in the course of their school education. A School Counseling Program can help schools mitigate some of the adverse affects of modern educational system, moulding their wards into balanced achievers. Here are the top ten ways in which our counseling program benefits the students and the faculty.
1. PREPARES STUDENTS TO FACE ACADEMIC, EMOTIONAL AND SOCIAL CHALLENGES.
Children these days are exposed to a variety of activities in which they are expected to excel. However, in order to achieve excellence, they need to sharpen and ground their academic, emotional and social skills. School counseling facilitates this process.
2. EARLY DETECTION AND PREVENTION OF EMOTIONAL BURNOUT AMONG STUDENTS & TEACHERS
Students, these days, endure a very exhaustive learning regime geared towards competition, while also having to engage in a wide array of extra curricular activities with the same intensity as the formal educational system. If not properly advised, it might lead to a burnout, both among the students as well as among teachers struggling to meet the demands of the modern parents. School Counseling helps in early detention of the tell tale signs of burnout and provide effective means to prevent and treat these emotional depletion.
3. GUIDE TEACHERS TO IDENTIFY PSYCHOLOGICAL & BEHAVIORAL ISSUES AMONG STUDENTS.
Teachers hold an irreplaceable and a very responsible role in moulding our children. They spend a fair share of the day with the children, also having the opportunity to observe children in their inter personal behaviour. If properly informed and trained, they can play a very critical role in early detection and ease of correcting psychological and behavioral issues among students. School counseling program is geared to do just that.
4. DEVELOP COGNITIVE AND EMOTIONAL SKILLS IN STUDENTS AND TEACHERS.
Teachers being craftspeople of a society, and children-the makers of the tomorrow, certainly need their cognitive and emotional skills to be identified and developed.
5. FACILITATES STUDENTS TO EXPLORE THEIR AREA OF INTEREST AND CAREER OPTION.
In the twelve years of schooling, a student goes from learning across disciplines to enhance overall knowledge to specializing in disciplines and fields in which they shall make a career and seek excellence. It is important to master a few trades rather than remain a jack of all. However, the decision to choose a career path, in the tender and impressive age of adolescents, requires a lot of rational and emotional quotient. School counseling program, along with paternal advise and guidance from the teachers, also helps students make these choices.
6. TRAIN TEACHERS IN CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT & FACULTY ENHANCEMENT
With a rapid shift in technologies, and increasing research into teaching methods and techniques, skill building workshops help teachers to improve their performance, break the monotony of the classroom and remain upto date with emerging tools of learning.
7. ENHANCES THE STUDENT-TEACHER RELATIONSHIP AND BUILD TRUST.
With the world becoming complex and fast paced, students could encounter a lot of issues and would feel comfortable talking to a teacher rather than parents. Enhancing student teacher relationship is something that cannot be ignored.
8. MOTIVATIONAL PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS ON COMPETITIONS / SPORTS
Every person needs that push to go one step further, to reach their maximum potential, to excel in anything. Our counselors design motivational programs that helps students to understand the bigger picture with regards to competitions and sports, encourage them to participate and steadily improve. It also helps students to gain the maturity to take losses in their stride and learn from the mistakes rather than step away at the face of competition.
9. ENHANCES RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE STUDENTS OF DIFFERENT GENDERS.
Our society is no more a gendered space, where interactions between men and women are restricted to specific spaces. Our work, recreational and public spaces are becoming mixed spaces. Yet our education system remains lacking in helping students to maintain healthy relationships between the genders, be it at a social or an interpersonal level. Our program focuses on this aspect to improve mutual communication and enhance healthy relationship between the genders.
10. REDUCES THE BURDEN ON TEACHERS AND THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION
Teachers and the school management have enormous work and responsibility as they deal education and enhancement of student minds. This might put great pressure on them, which could be relieved through school counseling programmes.
Children and adolescents are the future of a society. Therefore their mental well being is something that cannot be ignored. It is the responsibility of every one of us to bring up children that are physically well, and emotionally, intellectually and behaviorally awesome. For this every child is entitled to a school counselling program.
