Counselor Resources

The role of school counselor is integral to creating an environment where all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/ expression, feel safe and accepted at school. School counselors may feel hesitant to address issues affecting LGBTQQ students and families because they lack experience or awareness in working with LGBTQQ youth or children of LGBTQQ parents. Others may work in environments where they feel powerless to change the status quo or to address a discriminatory school climate. Between scheduling, parent-teacher conferences, classroom guidance lessons, and a heavy caseload, it is often difficult for school counselors to find the time necessary to proactively address LGBTQQ issues – such as bullying or prejudice in schools.

GSSC is here to help. The following is a list of detailed suggestions that will facilitate positive systemic change within your school:
