International students are often challenged by continued mobility and difficulties settling. Finding their place can be difficult and some thrive whilst others struggle. This webinar will explore some of the ways counselors and administrators can work together to create a safe and stimulating environment where all students can thrive.
During this webinar, we'll explore the relationship between school administrators/leaders and counselors - what can go wrong and how best to leverage this potentially powerful partnership. A culture of care, compassion and achievement is much more likely to emerge if there is mutual trust and a critical friend approach.
