Thriving School Psychologist
Course & Community

School psychologists are often overworked and underutilized. In 2017, Dr. Branstetter was on the brink of burnout herself, and turned her struggle into founding the The Thriving Students Collective®, a community of nearly half of the school psychologists in the nation. Her signature online course and year-long mentorship supports school psychologists to use their full skill sets to prevent burnout, serve diverse students and complex learners, and advocate for more resources for mental health and learning supports in our public schools.
