Our Safe Haven: Online Support Sessions for School Counselors and School-Based Clinicians

School counselors, the work you do is important, effective… and difficult! These live online sessions will provide a safe, non-threatening space for professionals like you to discuss the hurdles you face in your work while connecting with others who share similar experiences. Led by David Prescott, a mental health practitioner with four decades of experience, these online sessions will provide you with a rich, meaningful experience in a supportive environment.

You are uniquely positioned to aid in stopping violence and preventing abuse before it happens. Our resources will not only help you identify and work with children and teens who have been abused and are at risk of becoming abusive but will educate you in other related areas such as mindfulness, child development, and working with families.

In each session, we will discuss topics important and relevant to those attending, for example:

  • Working under challenging circumstances.
  • Establishing a work/life balance, staying healthy, and self-care.
  • How to get support when something goes wrong (for example, when time or circumstance doesn’t allow for providing the counseling that students need).
  • Working with those who have endured trauma and adversity.
  • Interacting with families.
  • Coping with the lingering after-effects of the pandemic.

To ensure that each session is workable, we will limit the number of attendees. Registration for each session will, therefore, be on a first-come-first-served basis. We are charging a non-refundable fee of $8.00 to reserve your spot. 

Each session will run from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm EDT.

Upcoming sessions have been scheduled for:

  1. August 14, 2023
  2. August 17, 2023

Your personal privacy is our highest priority. These sessions will be recorded for liability purposes only. The recordings will not be shared with attendees or distributed outside of Safer Society Foundation.

Like any group discussion, everyone will have a responsibility to keep it a safe, professional, and confidential space. We will adhere to the codes of ethics of our professions, mandatory laws, and other professional standards. The Safe Haven series is intended to be supportive; not formal supervision, consultation, or legal advice.
