This presentation will focus on how the problems facing urban school districts are changing as a result of the increasing number and complexity of students problems. We discuss how problems with bullying are now embedded in a broader array of emotional and developmental problems including anxiety, trauma, and poor social and emotional skills. Finally, we discuss what we know about what works, and the best practices for counselors and counseling in school and community mental health settings.
