Using the Hartman Value Profile to Identify Students in Need of Social Emotional Support in Public High Schools

Overview:  Mental health is a national epidemic for our young people.  Schools are scrambling to keep up with students' needs. With an average student to counselor ratio of 455 students to 1 counselor, tools to help identify and support students who are struggling with self-esteem, hopelessness, and belonging are more crucial than ever. Sueann Casey, Chief Customer Experience Officer and Co-Founder of the Indigo Education Company ( has used the Hartman Value Profile along with a suite of other assessment tools in over 200 high schools across the country.  She will discuss her data findings from schools, tell stories of real student’s lives who were changed, and share how schools are using the HVP to design intervention groups and improve the lives of their students.

Top Three Takeaways:

  • The HVP is a powerful way to connect with teenagers.
  • Education as a whole is meant to be an intrinsic system.
  • Students can experience rapid growth when seen as intrinsically valuable.
