Helping Children Cope with Traumatic Events
Get access to thousands of lesson plansJoin us
Schools are the most important places in a community for an educator or student to receive support when a crisis occurs. Schools provide a familiar environment where the many needs of grieving students and faculty can be met in one place. Administrators and educators need to be prepared to deal with any crisis that might arise; such preparation will better equip them to respond to students' emotional needs in the wake of a crisis. These resources may be of help to you in helping your students cope with fear and trauma.
