    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. The family therapists address a variety of family and emotional problems in counseling, including:


    * Learning Disorders School Phobia Hyperactivity/ ADD/ADHD

    * Study Skills Peer Pressure Parenting Skills Self-esteem Issues

    * Abandonment Bereavement/Loss Separation/Divorce Domestic Violence

    * Anger Management Substance Abuse Physical Abuse Stress Management

    * Eating Disorders Aggression Anxiety/Depression Bullying

    * Communication Skills Crisis Intervention Economic Issues Self-destructiveness
