Counseling Tools during the Coronavirus Outbreak

Dear Saint Gregory Families, 

I am working to create a place here to store counseling related tools that may be helpful to you all as we navigate this journey together. I will include tips for extended days at home with the kids, in cases where getting out and about may be limited. I will also include a listing of resources for any families who may be confronted with hardships if measures for social distancing become extended or more rigorous. We will begin with tips for explaining the coronavirus outbreak to children, and keeping the environment at home one that is open for ongoing questions and discussions. 

Blessings, you are all in the prayers of the Sisters (including me!),

Sister Josephine

Counseling Services: Healing Hearts & Minds Program

Our school-based mental health care program is an effort to provide support in the character formation of our students, and meet concrete mental health needs of our students, and the families who are a part of our school community.

This effort is a comprehensive program, set up to provide support to the school community as a whole, as well as in specialized groups or individual services as needed. We seek to offer virtue-focused and practical tools, solutions, and options to students and families in the context of their own school and community.

School-wide Guidance

Our school-based mental health care program is focused on providing students, through routine guidance lessons, practical skills and education to cope in healthy and virtuous ways with everyday life stressors. These community-wide services are also be made available to parents through newsletters and parent workshops. 

Small Groups

Groups are also held in the program. Groups focus on topics important to students and families in the school who may be having similar experiences and would benefit from a group setting. 

Individual Services

Lastly, individual services can be considered when there are circumstances that support the need for the student to have individual care. Please contact the school counselor to discuss this.
