Small Group and Individual Counseling
Small groups are organized to help students meet certain challenges they may be facing. These groups give student’s an opportunity to share and acquire specific skills in a confidential setting. Small groups consist of 3-6 students and usually meet once a week for 6 weeks during the grade level lunch period. Some of the guidance groups offered at CRES are friendship, anger management, self-esteem, grief, and family change. Individual counseling is offered to students as needed. Students can be referred by parents, teachers, or self-referrals.
