MUCH HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT STUDENTS WHO "FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS": students whose emotional issues, anxiety, or home dysfunction remain unaddressed throughout their years in school. Regretfully, too many of our children are suffering - and our schools desperately need a trained eye to spot these students.

THE TORAH UMESORAH NEFESH CHAYA MASHGIACH & MECHANECHES TRAINING PROGRAM was developed to provide our schools with professionally trained personnel to help address the needs of students experiencing academic, behavioral or social difficulties. The training includes 25 intense courses with mental health professionals and veteran educators to equip these teachers with vital tools to recognize and address students' needs. The courses are taught by doctorate level instructors, some of the most sought after top level professionals in today's mental health world.

REMOTE LEARNING AVAILABLE for students out of the NY tri-state area. Students are able to participate and interact during live ZOOM sessions.

THE CURRICULUM INCLUDES: Foundations of Counseling, The Helping Relationship, Human Development Trauma, Crisis, and Relief, Mental Health Issues, Professional & Ethical Practice, Resiliency & Grit, Bereavement, Technology, Psychopathology, Consultation and Supervision, Learning Differences, Fundamentals of Self-Esteem.


Registration period: EXTENEDED THROUGH THE SUMMER. During this period, applications will be reviewed. Our office will send acceptance letters when the enrollment period closes.
