FAMILY COUNSELING AND SOCIAL WORK DEPARTMENT
Sonia Alejandra Romero, Family Counselor
The Northeast High Family Counseling Program is celebrating its 30th year in Broward County Schools. We are committed to the goal of helping students reach their maximum potential in the classroom while promoting optimal mental health and family functioning. Our program has consistently and positively affected student academic performance, responsible behavior in school, and regular attendance. The Family Counseling Program (FCP) functions under the belief that a mentally healthy student learns better. Research has found that when someone experiences emotional difficulty they may suffer repercussions that lead to problems in their general daily functioning. For students, this is often evident in the academic arena, whether academically, behaviorally, or in terms of poor attendance.
Some of the individual and family issues addressed in counseling are:
· Attendance and Academic performance
· Problem Solving and Study Skills
· Peer and Family relationships
· Communication Skills
· Anger and Stress Management
· Decision Making and Behavior Management
· Anxiety/Depression and Bereavement/Loss
To schedule an appointment, parents can contact us at 754-322-1591. Students can request an appointment by visiting us in 67 North.
James Neeck, School Social Worker
School Social Workers are support professionals embedded in our schools to help children and families when they encounter barriers that impact a child’s academic and social development. School Social Workers are advocates who help students achieve academic and social emotional success by linking the home, school, and community. Social work support services include intervention, crisis support and mental health counseling, addressing issues of non-attendance and truancy, completing behavioral assessments, and psychosocial evaluations.
