COOPER CITY HIGH SCHOOL FAMILY COUNSELING
For more than twenty years, the Family Counseling Program has consistently and positively affected student academic performance, responsible behavior in school, and regular attendance through the individual, family, and group counseling services offered. This is reflected in improvement in academic performance, decreases in administrative referrals, and more regular school attendance. Mental health treatment goals include enhanced family functioning, parenting skills, self-esteem, and interpersonal relationships.
The Family Counseling Program 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. Frequently, school-related problems may be symptomatic of those troubles.
The family counselors address a variety of family and emotional problems in counseling, including:
- School Adjustment, School Phobia, ADD/ADHD
- Relationships, Peer Pressure, Self-esteem Issues
- Parenting Skills, Abandonment
- Bereavement/Loss, Separation/Divorce, Domestic Violence
- Anger Management, Substance Abuse, Physical Abuse
- Stress Management, Eating Disorders, Aggression
- Communication Skills, Anxiety/Depression, Crisis Intervention
- Economic Issues, Self-destructiveness, Bullying
The Family Counseling Program is committed to the goal of helping students reach their maximum potential in the classroom while promoting optimal mental health and family functioning.
Cooper City High School is accepting students and families for the 2016-17 school year. The Center is open from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm with one counselor available to serve the needs of students and their families.
