Guidance/SAFE Resources

At Union Park Middle School, we strive to follow the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) model, which allows us to reach students and offer positive guidance that helps students with academics, college preparation, and individual socio-emotional concerns. As school counselors, we work with students individually, in groups, and in the classrooms. Some of the services provided include crisis intervention, conflict resolution, coping strategies, group counseling and we help refer out for further counseling services needed.
