Family Counseling

Family Counseling header
  • The Family Counseling Program 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.

    Frequently, school-related problems may be symptomatic of those troubles.

Preventive Counseling

  • The FCP has been serving the Broward County community for more than thirty years. The program has consistently and positively impacted student academic performance, responsible behavior in school, and regular attendance through the individual, family, and group counseling services offered. FCP is committed to the goal of helping students reach their maximum potential in the classroom while promoting optimal mental health and family functioning.

    The Family Counseling Program additionally serves students in order to prevent possible future behavioral issues by offering preventive counseling in the following areas:
