Product Description

This self-control counseling group helps students identify triggers, coping skills, and systems to put in place to feel empowered to make good choices and maintain self-control at home and school. This group goes beyond impulse control. Students will develop habits and thought patterns to take accountability for their choices. Calming the Storm is a low-prep 8 week upper elementary and middle school self-control group set to ASCA Standards and Objectives. Group members will practice self-reflection, communication, goal setting and more with each week's self-control building activities.

BENEFITING STUDENTS

Each week students will learn self-control skills they can use at home and school to help them take responsibility for their actions. In addition, they will improve communication skills and learn critical thinking and self-reflection skills.

At a minimum, being in the counseling group allows students to identify and share their feelings, develop self-esteem through participation, and practice empathy while hearing others’ experiences.

SAVING TIME

With easy to implement outlines and activities, this group curriculum is very low-prep. Simply print out each session before students arrive and keep them in a file folder. For tips on how to organize your small groups, check out this blog post I wrote. The self-assessments are a great way to get students to self-reflect on their progress and you can then share this information with teachers, parents, or in your program report.

Also make sure to track your data and compile it in an end of the year report. Here is an outline I created to make it easy!
