Wisconsin School Counselor Association

10th Annual Fall Summit


UW Baraboo-Sauk County | Baraboo, WI 

9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Thursday, November 7, 2019


Session A: Mental Health in Schools

Morning: Join Jenny Bliefernict, LPC, Lead Therapist, Child & Adolescent Programs for Rogers Behavioral Health to learn about anxiety, OCD, and mental health diagnosis in children and adolescents.

Afternoon: Join Deseree Nehrkorn, LPC, Therapist at The Pauquette Center with a specialty working with children and adolescents for a session on DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). She works primarily in the Prairie du Sac location and will also be working in the Madison office when that location opens in December.

Participants will learn strategies for helping children with mental health concerns and walk away with some ready-to-use knowledge and resources available to help  . Additionally, resources will be available for referral to The Paquette Center for students and their families.

Session B: Advancing Cultural Competency to Equity in Educational Settings

School staff advocating for equitable practices cultivate the knowledge and skills that enable them to influence and change the existence of inequity in school communities. More than cultural competence or diversity awareness, equity prepares educators to see even subtle ways in which access and opportunity are distributed unfairly.

Session C: Data Boot Camp – Advanced: RAMP Camp/WSCPAR Ready

Bring your process, perception and outcome data and comprehensive counseling program components to this session to take your school counseling program to the next level! Learn more about RAMP and the Wisconsin School Counselor Accountability Report (WSCPAR)! Based on the ASCA National Model, RAMP is a recognition program for individual schools, not districts or school counselors. Applying for RAMP helps schools evaluate their school counseling program, discover areas for improvement and enhance the program’s efforts to contribute to student success. The RAMP application process should be the culmination of the implementation of a comprehensive school counseling program, which typically takes three-five years to implement. Once a school has a program in place, it will need at least one entire academic year to collect the data and information needed to fulfill the RAMP and WSCPAR application requirements. Your trainer will guide you through the application requirements and process.

Note about the WSCPAR:  Extended deadline! The WSCPAR, application and all supporting materials must be emailed to Stacey Miller at data@wscaweb.org before Monday November 11, 2019 at 5:00 pm. This will allow you to attend the WSCA Fall Summit in Baraboo on Thursday November 7, 2019 for support and help in finishing your WSCPAR.


Participants will be put in a drawing for a free signed children’s book on self-regulation or mindfulness.
