    Hello colleagues,

    I hope this is okay to post here. I am an RCC and the Vice President (Wellness) for the BC School Counsellors’ Association (BCSCA) and I am currently working on a project to help connect and support school counsellors through a model of peer consultation. It is something I have been working towards/on since completing my PhD in Health Sciences in 2019 for which my main finding was that teachers (including school counsellors) really appreciate the time and space to work through challenging emotions and experiences collaboratively. We had a semi-official launch on October 20 when I led an experiential pre-conference session on this at the BCSCA conference. Poking around on the BCACC site this evening, I found this group and am wondering if anyone might be interested in getting connected to this project. I am always looking for more perspectives. 🙂

    I am very interested in this project. As the only elementary school counsellor in my small district a larger network will be greatly appreciated.

    I would love to know more about what your research found and how to implement it in a school setting.

    Hi Shirley,

    I notice that this post is time stamped from last year, but I would like to know if this is something that was started? If so, I would love to get some more information on how to get involved.

    I had previously posted and didn’t hear back. I’m definitely still interested in participating if interest is there.
