Schools on the Frontline
Dr. Carl Cohn was one of the keynote speakers for CASC's virtual conference last week.
Of particular interest is last week's podcast where Dr. Cohn addressed one of the most challenging — and hidden — aspects of the pandemic: the mental health needs of students and their teachers. Carl spoke with Dr. Jeannine Topalian, president of the California Association of School Psychologists, and CASC's very own executive director Dr. Loretta Whitson. The discussion centered on the lack of mental health resources in our schools and the additional challenges posed by the pandemic. Delivering services to students is no easy feat in a remote learning environment, but Dr. Topalian and Dr. Whitson explained how their members hope to get it done. Click here to listen.
