DISOBEDIENCE, stealing and graffiti are some of the disciplinary issues that school counsellors always have to address when dealing with students in school.

Sila Central High School counsellor Kantha Mani, during the Fiji school counsellors workshop in Suva on Monday said, in order for students to overcome their problems, counsellors needed to look at students' social settings.

"We as counsellors need to ask ourselves why students are misbehaving or stealing and so we need to look at the social setting especially at home," Mrs Mani said.

"Getting 23 counsellors from around the country to interact is a good opportunity for counsellors to raise their concerns on issues they face."
