Ms. Elizabeth Mohr, Assistant Director of College Counseling, is a member of the International School Counselor Association (ISCA) task force that is compiling a COVID-19 lesson and resource sharing project. She has been working with them since March to collect information for the ISCA initiative which is designed to provide support and share practical tips, lessons, and other resources to counselor colleagues. In addition to sharing online counseling lessons, the website includes articles and webinars offering advice on how to communicate and nurture hope during these uncertain times. As part of the project, the task force team manages submissions from counselors and answers emails related to issues surrounding the pandemic. The project has been an overwhelming success and so far over 800 counselors, administrators, and teachers have registered to view the resources.
Ms. Mohr was also involved in the planning and presentation of a Grief & Loss webinar that took place on April 21. The 60-minute webinar focused on ways to plan for and respond to grief and loss during a pandemic.

In April, the ISCA also published Ms. Mohr’s article examining why having too much choice can be a double-edged sword. In Grappling with “Life” after High School, are Options Really a Good Thing? she looks at the psychology behind decision making as well as ways to support students faced with the wealth of post-secondary options available.
