Counselor Workshops

Throughout the year, content-specific mini-conferences will be hosted at ESC6 to provide professional development for school counselors at all levels. Sessions that compliment professional responsibilities as defined in The Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs – 5th Edition are scheduled each year based upon input from counselors in the ESC6 service area. The workshops/mini-conferences offer great opportunities for networking with other professionals in the regional counseling community.
