School Counselor's First Aid Kit

A
A School Counselor's First Aid Kit would contain the following:

  • Tissue: Counselors help you dry your tears when you are feeling sad or overwhelmed. Counselors remind you that it is okay to cry - letting out our feelings is healthy and helps us heal!
  • Toothpick: Counselors help you "pick out" your problems and make sense of them.
  • Milky Way: Seeing the counselor is always a "treat" - it never means that you are in trouble! Also, just like a treat, counselors can help you feel better when you are sad or upset.
  • Star: Explorers from long ago used the "North Star" as a guide to help them stay on track and find their way when they were lost. Like the North Star, the counselor can help you if you are feeling lost, confused, or unsure about how to solve a problem.
  • Penny: Pennies have value and are often considered lucky - "Find a penny, pick it up…all day long you'll have good luck!" The penny reminds us that each and every one of us is valuable, special, and lucky to be who we are!
  • Band-Aid/Bandage: Counselors can help heal your wounds (the invisible ones that are deep inside of us) and make you feel better.
  • Eraser: Everyone makes mistakes and the counselor can help us deal with our feelings when we make mistakes. She can also help us learn how to not make the same mistake again in the future!
  • Life Saver: Counselors are there to talk to you and help "save" you from scary, sad, or stressful situations. Counselors will help you "stay afloat" throughout the school year by giving you support, guidance, and love!
  • Cotton Ball: Counselors are full of warm fuzzies and compliments! Seek me out when you are feeling blue, and I'll help cheer you up!
