Therapeutic Component

This will include both individual and group counseling to support each student’s mental health as well as offer guidance during the time of transition.  One of the goals of counseling in the transition program is to offer comfort as well as accountability in order to best support the student’s growth.  This includes working with the student on seeking outside resources (or expanding their outside network) which could include further educating students on resources available from DVRS and exploring independent living options etc. Another goal of counseling in transition is to intensively work with the students on utilizing their coping skills in the moment as they face the challenges transitioning to a new job or school may bring while also working with the student to further develop positive habits.
