Group Counseling

Small-Group counseling experiences are offered at PAMS throughout the school year.  Group counseling is a way for 6-8 students to work together with a counselor.  Group discussions are confidential.  All groups offer the opportunity to learn how to communicate effectively, manage stress, solve problems, and enhance self-concept.  Participation requires parent permission.

Please see your counselor if you have questions about group counseling.
