School counseling is a complex profession that requires ongoing professional development. Professional development is about being aware of the decisions you make, the way you think about, and the way you handle different situations. The concept behind professional development is the idea that you have untapped potential, and to not settle with what you have if you want to grow and meet the needs of your students. Professional development is a process of continually progressing and refining your qualities as a school counselor. KSCA wants school counselors to be aware that there are many fine opportunities available. We will update this section of the website regularly to make school counselors aware of opportunities they might wish to pursue.
