Last year at this time, I started my March (School Psych) Madness video training series with NO FREAKIN CLUE what was in store for us school psychs just a few weeks later.
MAJOR UPSET in the brackets.
🏀 Week One’s: Decision Fatigue vs. Simplification was complicated by Decision PARALYSIS as we turned on a dime to be virtual school psychs.
🏀 Week Two’s match up of Dopamine v.s Serotonin had an extra layer of CORTISOL stress hormone up in that mix.
🏀 In Week Three, where we usually had a match up between Endless To Do List and Prioritization, many of us had to contend with the fact that we could not work on our normal to-do lists remotely.
🏀 Obligation vs. Conscious Choice in Week 4 was a joke, as we had so little choice. Many of us became homeschooling parents overnight and had no choice but to try and juggle it all.
A year later, we have some collective wisdom on how to keep calm and school psych on…in a pandemic.
You see, here in the Thriving School Psychologist Collective course and community, we’ve been zooming before zooming was a commonly used verb….okaaaaaayyyyyy?
When the pandemic hit, we already had twice monthly Zoom calls on our calendar, and we met as usual, all year long, and coached ourselves on how to keep calm and carry on. OH. EM. GEE. I will forever be grateful for this community for that comfort in the chaos! 🧡
