What is a Special Care Counsellor?
According to the Quebec Association of Special Care Counsellors Code of Conduct,
“1.1 SPECIAL CARE COUNSELLOR (S.C.C) is defined as follows: A professional who intervenes with individuals or groups of individuals of any age who experience or are likely to experience various adjustment problems in the field of mental health, social services and education. The S.C.C. evaluates and accompanies the client through situations of daily living, educational, helping relationships, and through intervention techniques. The S.C.C. pursues objectives of social integration and personal development in the fields of prevention, education and rehabilitation.
1.2. Their role consists of observing and evaluating the needs, abilities, lifestyles and behaviours of persons with psychosocial adjustment problems. The S.C.C. may also proceed with the screening, assessment, detection and identification of undiagnosed disorders. They must also assess the suicide risk and dangerousness exhibited by a person in crisis. They note the data in the record and write progress reports, using the method designated by their organization.
1.3. The S.C.C. has the obligation to establish an intervention plan for each client assigned to them, within the context of a planned intervention process.”
