Counseling students make poster presentations at state conference

Several students in the school counseling program made poster presentations at the N.C. School Counseling Association’s annual conference earlier this month in Greensboro:

  • Molly Monroe, Ally Frosch and Kevin Duquette presented “Making Connections in a New School Environment,” which examined effects of elementary and middle school students’ transitions after being introduced to school and community resources to help them with a new school environment.
  • Ciera Nicholson and Carl Yiu presented on their project “Is Bigger REALLY Better: Counseling Obese Students,” which examined how school counselors can help support students struggling with weight issues.
  • Sara Predieri, Eve Vonchucherd and Bisset Lee presented on their project “Empowering the New Kid in Middle School and High School,” which examined how students can help transfer students build their confidence and practice skills.
  • Chancie Housholder, Kathryn Mauck and Maureen Kurz presented on “Taking a Stand Against Bullying at School and on the Internet: A Multi-Faceted Approach,” which described an approach and resources for school counselors and information for parents, all aimed at reducing bullying behaviors.
