Counseling & Human Services
School counselors are trained in providing academic, career, and social/emotional support to K-12 students. In March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic took the world of K-12 education by surprise, forcing school counselors to deliver a virtual school counseling program with little to no time for preparation. School counselors were faced with meeting the seemingly ever-changing needs of K-12 students as social, political, and health concerns evolved throughout the pandemic. Although schools have since begun to reopen their doors, the effects of Covid-19 are far from over. The purpose of this study was to explore the experiences of United States (U.S.) public school counselors providing virtual services to K-12 students throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. This valuable insight into the world of virtual school counseling during Covid-19 will serve as a platform for the development of future practices, training, and counselor education curricula.
