The School Counselor’s Role In Trauma Recovery

On Feb. 14, 2018, a gunman entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., killing 17 people and injuring 17 more. In the aftermath, the school district responded with recovery services for the entire school zone, including hiring additional school counselors. Learn how the team of school counselors worked to aid in recovery efforts following this large-scale traumatic event, including collaborations with trauma experts, classroom lessons, suicide prevention and support for the entire community.

In this webinar:
Identify ways to work with students, parents and staff who have been through a traumatic event, including research-based practices.
Explain how school districts can use school counselors after traumatic events.
Identify ways to help build resiliency skills in students through social/emotional learning.
