Second Step Counseling Curriculum

The research-based Second Step program helps schools teach and model essential communication, coping, and decision-making skills that help adolescents navigate around common pitfalls such as peer pressure, substance abuse, and bullying (both in-person and online). The outcome? Reduced aggression and support for a more inclusive environment that helps students stay in school, make good choices, and experience social and academic success. More information on Second Step may be found at their website.

Swanson Counselors will be using the Second Step curriculum to guide our classroom counseling curriculum throughout the year. You can find additional resources below.
