This interactive lapbook is a great way to start and end individual counseling sessions. It gives you a quick idea of how the student is doing when they come in and where their head’s at when they leave. This tool is something that can be used with each session with students – consistency in counseling sessions can be very therapeutic! Structured sessions are also aligned with cognitive behavioral theory and solution focused theory.
The lapbook allows the student to identify how they are currently feeling, how they felt since your last session, how they view school/home/friends, and what they want to talk about. When they check out, students identify if they’re feeling better, a positive self-affirmation to remember, and how they want to say goodbye. Velcro pieces, sliders, and clips allow for the student to respond visually and physically to the prompts.

This resource now includes an interactive Google Slides (TM) version for virtual counseling. The content is the same, but has students using drag and drop for their responses. You can do this “live” with students – video chatting with them and screen sharing. Or, you can send it to them to work on independently (all they need is a Google account). If you don’t use google classroom, students can share it with you by clicking the yellow share button and emailing it to you!
