Association of Counsellors of Catholic Secondary Schools of Queensland (ACCSSQ) is affiliated with the parent body, ACSSQ. School counsellors are integral to the whole school community approach to wellbeing, offering individualised assistance to students and their families, and working collaboratively and in partnership with educators, sharing their knowledge and expertise. Schools are increasingly being called upon to not only educate young people but to provide care and support for students’ social, emotional and behavioural needs. A growing body of research suggests that children’s’ capacity to learn correlates strongly with their emotional wellbeing.

The committee provides the opportunity to engage in professional learning and reflection at its annual conference.
