School Counselor Cohort

Prizmah’s School Counselor Cohort, now in its 6th year, provides a collaborative and supportive professional development experience for school counselors in Jewish day schools and yeshivas.

During nine months of learning and network building, gain the practical tools, research, and knowledge you need to thrive as you support students, faculty, and families, and as you lead the integration of all areas of mental health and wellness in schools. With facilitation from Prizmah experts, led by Dr. Oshra Cohen, and presentations from leading researchers and practitioners in the field of mental health, you will have the opportunity to workshop, collaborate, and discuss challenges and leading practices. This space is created to learn, grow, and support one another.

Registration is open

Why Join?

The opportunity for school counselors from Jewish day schools and yeshivas across North America to have a dedicated time and space to collaborate, learn, and workshop is critical to the success of implementing new processes and procedures around mental health and wellbeing in your school.

School counselors who participate will benefit from staying connected with peers on a regular basis, and will benefit from peer to peer mentoring, as well as expert coaching and mentoring and practical skill training. Counselors will also receive ongoing education on topics relevant to your work in schools.
