Quality Improvements in Counselling Services this Year • The biggest and most impactful quality improvement has been the introduction of the Nucleus electronic case management system for our counselling records. • The CS program has been entering into partnerships within the agency: a joint proposal for a counselling position to help sex trade and exploited youth transition away from that lifestyle was submitted with the Youth Services program; Sophie’s Place and the SAC program are in talks about affiliate work in providing support groups and such to parents in our community; WESC and the CS program are working on a fee for service-based counselling program for the WESC clients who are survivors of violence. • A new practicum manual has been created for practicum students beginning with us in September 2015. Updated information on our web-site regarding practicum placements with counselling services has been added.
