Wendy's and Steve's services are available to St.Odilia families free of charge.  We welcome your calls whatever the reason.  Typical requests for our services fall under the following categories:
  • Counseling - we are able to meet with any student for any reason with parent permission.
  • Classroom Presentations and Groups - we provide classroom presentations on just about any topic and can offer groups focusing on grief issues, family change, social skills, and academic skills.
  • Testing - We will usually provide testing services directly.  If there is a need for something outside our areas of expertise, we will help St. Odilia families find exactly what is needed.
Our school contracts with Phoenix School Counseling for counseling services. Dr. Steve Kahn is the founder of this group that now works in 25 Catholic schools throughout the greater Twin Cities area. Counselors are available to meet individually with students upon parent request and to provide classroom guidance sessions on any needed topic. Testing is available for attention, learning or emotional concerns. Dr. Kahn is available for individual meetings or phone calls with parents on any matter pertaining to children and parenting. He is the author of the well-regarded book on parenting: Insightful Parenting: Making Moments Count. There is never a charge for any service from Dr. Kahn or his counselors as they are included as part of your tuition.

Helping Kids Sort Through Tragic Events in the News
When tragedy strikes in our nation or world - whether close to home or not - we often wonder how to sort through these events with our children. Here is a link to Fred Rogers website, aka Mr. Rogers, who has some good advice. http://www.fci.org/new-site/par-tragic-events.html
Also, from the American School Counselors Association:

Helping Kids During Crisis

• Try and keep routines as normal as possible. Kids gain security from the predictability of routine, including attending school.
• Limit exposure to television and the news.
• Be honest with kids and share with them as much information as they are developmentally able to handle.
• Listen to kids’ fears and concerns.
• Reassure kids that the world is a good place to be, but that there are people who do bad things.
• Parents and adults need to first deal with and assess their own responses to crisis and stress.
• Rebuild and reaffirm attachments and relationships
