Category: General Promoting School Preparedness, Community Resilience, and Recovery in the Face of Adversity: Part 1 - Essentials

June 22, 2022

Schools play an important role in the recovery of students following community-wide trauma and adversity, but the road from preparedness to recovery begins long before a crisis event occurs and the response lasts well after the event is over.  This first session of a 4-part series will provide foundational information about collective trauma, how it affects members of a school community, the role of schools in crisis planning and response, and best practices in school crisis responses (including healing-centered school programming).

Learning Objectives:

Participants will:

  1. Understand the increasing risk and impact of collective trauma on students, staff, and teachers in schools.
  2. Identify the role of schools and school mental health providers in crisis planning and response.
  3. Identify the scope of trauma-informed best practices for comprehensive and long-term preparedness and response to accumulating collective trauma.
  4. Promote cross-state networking and shared learning about navigating toward recovery during traumatic events.
