From the BC Counsellor

"We should indeed keep calm in the face of difference, and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity." - George Takai.

So begins this article written by a former school counsellor now working with SOGI 123 team to inform British Columbians about the great diversity of students. Inclusion of all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity is now a directive from the Ministry of Education and most school districts have created policies around inclusion. Counsellors are on the front line and this article provides practical information about creating safe spaces and support for SOGI diverse students.

Many of us follow a favourite blogger, or read the occasional blog. We subscribe to online magazines that interest us and read what other people share. This is one of those articles that comes across one's desk that just won't leave us alone until we read it. "Modern society has transformed us into doers, performers, and overachievers". We know the importance of making time for self. To recognize the theme of the 2018 BC Counsellors Association conference -RE:new - step away from the 'trap of busyness'.
