Research has proved a variety of factors of physical, emotional, social/personal, and economic barriers that have significant impact on students’ learning and lives. ESI adopts the best practices of school counseling from authentic studies and initiatives around the world, especially the ASCA National Standards for Students from the United States to support schools, families and students in Vietnam to reduce school violence, bullying, and student’s mental health and social/personal development.
The ESI Group has been conducting several studies and will continue collaborating with global and local Vietnamese Counselors Community to do more research on an effective model of professional school counseling. We are ambitious to create an ESI Professional School Counseling Program® for public schools in Vietnam to improve the school counseling quality, students’ academic, mental health and emotional/personal development.
