Together we provide peer support, professional development, problem-solving assistance and promotion of mental health awareness among Jewish day school counselors through research and advocacy. We create collaborative research projects with interested JCoP members in order to advocate and add valuable information to our field. However, regardless of your level of interaction, the JCoP is a significant resource for any Jewish day school guidance counselor.
As a member, you can communicate with your colleagues in a secure, professional online environment. You can create, share, and search a database of journal articles, member posts, videos, discussions and research papers created by other Jewish day school therapists and other experts in the field. You can also engage in collaborative research projects organized and implemented by members of the JCoP.
The JCoP is currently being facilitated by Dr. Eliezer Jones who holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. He has worked clinically with children and adolescents for over ten years, was recently on the guidance team at Robert M. Beren Academy in Houston, TX and is also an expert in educational technology. He is currently the Educational Technology Specialist at the Institute for University-School Partnership at the Azrieli Graduate School of Yeshiva University and is a fellow in the Jim Joseph Foundation fellowship in educational technology, which is facilitated by the Lookstein Center for Jewish Education and Bar-Ilan University.
