Classroom Management: Counseling Services at OC

Classroom management is a term used by teachers to describe the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly despite disruptive behavior by students. The term also implies the prevention of disruptive behavior.

Mental Health Promotion & Suicide Prevention

  • Coping: Find healthy ways to manage stress
  • Attachment: Form positive and supportive connections
  • Resourcefulness: Make use of internal and external resources
  • Empowerment: Help others to help themselves
  • Self-efficacy: Believe you can achieve what your mind conceives

Personal Counseling

We do not diagnose, prescribe medications or provide long-term mental health care. The number of sessions varies according to the needs of each student. Within the scope of our practice we address a variety of student concerns by providing emotional support, exploring possible solutions, encouraging personal insight, and referring students to appropriate community-based resources. 

Academic & Career Counseling

You may work with a counselor individually or you may start the process in a Career Planning Workshop that is offered quarterly. You may enroll in General Studies 141 (Career and Transfer Planning) which is a two credit/non-transfer course.
