“Just because its back to school doesn’t mean its back to normal


A Professional Development Course for Teen Educators

The return to school and structured activities this fall will bring with it many new and unique challenges for both educators and youth. Whether it is the change in environment, social interactions or structure, youth will face more stressors than an average back-to-school season. Along with this increase in stressors, we are likely to see an increase in stress responses and mental health challenges. BaMidbar will be offering a two-session online course to help Jewish educators understand and better support the mental, emotional, and behavioral health needs of their students.
