Technology in Counseling

As a faculty member in the Master of Education in School Counseling program at American Public University (APUS), I have the opportunity to work and collaborate with amazing individuals that are advocates in school counseling and the counseling profession in general. Below is a link to a blog post on technology usage in school counseling, headed by my program director that I was able to contribute to. While reading it, think about how technology enhances the (school) counseling work that you do in recordkeeping, counseling, and connecting with parents, the community and other professionals. Counseling students, please reflect on how you can be more efficient in your practice with the use of various technology resources. Also, how does technology negatively impact students and school age clients you work with?

  1. I can't imagine working without technology. It is my lifeline. In the high school we sent college apps electronically, even before Naviance. Now as I have transitioned to middle school, I scout ideas, and share them as well on my blog, www.themiddleschoolcounselor.blogspot.com. Thanks for sharing your ideas

  2. Great points and of course technology enhances the work. We would have so many filing cabinets without it.
