Welcome to the 2018/19 school year! I hope it is filled with lots of fun, excitement and learning.
Our executive for the 2018/19 year is as follows:
Board Members for 2018/19:
On October 19th 2018 we will be hosting our MTS PD Day at the Victoria Inn Conference Centre. Dr. John Koop Harder will be presenting on the Trauma Informed Care and Grief. Dr. Koop Harder has contributed to the book “Insights into Counselling” put out by the CRTI and wrote the chapter on Grief. We look forward to you joining us for this dynamic and educational day.
Fall is here and this is always a time of pumpkin spice everything; especially if you are a fan of lattes. Change is in the air! We are back to routine and settling in to the school year ahead. Fall is a time of leaves letting go from the trees and crisp cool nights. Let us take some advice from the leaves and make sure to let go of what doesn’t serve us this year. The executive of MSCA wish you all a wonderful year ahead.
The Manitoba School Counsellors’ Association (MSCA) is a special area group of the Manitoba Teachers' Society, made up of individuals working or interested in the field of guidance and counselling. Our objectives are to promote and develop guidance and counselling services for children and youth, and to promote and provide training for school counsellors and professionals in related areas. MSCA provides an open forum and network for discussion of current issues in school counselling through our monthly meetings, our quarterly journal (MSC), and professional development opportunities.
