ABOUT THE PROGRAM

NESA is again offering this interactive cohort experience open to counselors at full NESA Member Schools. An experienced member of the Truman Group team will coordinate the meetings and provide the consultation. Each group of counselors will receive:

      • Consultation meetings twice per month
      • Peer-to-peer support
      • Educational consultation
      • Clinical consultation and referral
      • Didactic psychoeducation regarding psychopathology and basic management in schools
      • Up to 15 hours of individual clinical consultation (in cases that require significant coordination and/or planning and cannot be addressed in a group setting)

The groups will meet for 90 minutes twice per month between October 1, 2021 and May 31, 2022, on a regular day and at a time that works for participants, with breaks for school holidays.

NOTE: Groups are structured as standing cohorts instead of drop-in meetings. Counselors who commit to participate must be able to commit to the group meeting day/time throughout the year.

Participants will earn a NESA Certificate of Completion.


COUNSELOR FEEDBACK FROM LAST YEAR'S PROGRAM

You are doing a very good service to school counselors. This is a great place to talk about helping others and ourselves.
I loved being part of this cohort. I felt very supported and connected to the group.
It's a safe space to share what counselors have to deal with in challenging times. We bounce off ideas, we learn from each other, and we share frustrations that turn into possible solutions. It's been a great experience.
This year there were numerous unique challenges, and I am so thankful to have a cohort to help process, give professional advice and support.
The cohort functioned like a support group, and lightened my load. It was useful to hear about how the other schools in my region were handling COVID protocols and experiences. We are able to share resources, and we have made good connections.
The follow-up emails filled with resources from our discussion were always a welcome treat to extend the learning...I appreciated the varied expertise that existed in our group, and the way everyone brought something to the discussion.
