Renowned school and career counseling educator Dr. Norm Gysbers will make a free public appearance at 1 p.m. Nov. 17 at Lindenwood University’s Dunseth Auditorium in Harmon Hall.
Gysbers, who has published several books and articles, was influential in the development of the National Model for School Counseling Programs, according to Dr. Sarah Patterson-Mills, Lindenwood School Counseling Department chair. His comprehensive guidance approach was adopted by the State of Missouri and other states and school districts across the country.
“We’re tremendously fortunate to have Dr. Gysbers come to speak at Lindenwood,” Patterson-Mills said. “He’s an inspiration to many people in the counseling field; I know he certainly is an inspiration to me.”
Gysbers is expected to speak for about 90 minutes on the role of the school counselor from position to program. Afterwards, he will take questions from the audience.
“I invite you to share this with school counselors, administrators, and teachers who may want to learn more about the impact a school counselor may have on the school climate and culture, achievement, and behavior of all students in the school,” said Patterson-Mills.
