Do you work where students move in and out of the school at a faster rate than ever before? If so, you know the anxiety, excitement, anger, and/or sadness this can cause.
Moving can be difficult for everyone involved. It can be difficult for students, parents, and school staff. This issue is now addressed in one complete manual. To help those students who are new to the school, there is a seven-session small group that deals with adjusting to a new situation. For those students leaving the school, there is a two-session group to help them with the transistion. In order for all students to understand how students leaving and entering a school feel, there is a classroom guidance session. But that’s not all. There are also reproducible suggestions for parents, teachers, administrators, and counselors about to how they can be of service to this population and an extensive bibliography of books that will help students and adults alike to make a smooth transition. Everything you need to address the events that occur in our mobile society is included in this one book.
