GSPRA members enjoy monthly professional development with one-hour webinars. With COVID-19, the in-person conference for the 2020-21 school year was canceled, so monthly webinars were implemented to foster networking opportunities. Recent topics include communicating in the time of COVID-19, as well as a focus on diversity and inclusion.
GSPRA's first-ever webinar was on May 21, 2020 on the topic, 'Charging Station,' focused on wellness with four mental health and social services professionals serving as panelists.
There were 30 professionals from Georgia and across the country that attended the free hour-long session. During the discussions, the panelists shared tips about mindfulness, relaxation techniques, balancing work and home, and more.
