Focus on School safety
Reports of mass violence and shootings have dominated the headlines over the last few years. Although people are strong and often recover from adversity, these events almost always disrupt our sense of order and safety. Individuals who live far outside of the affected region and have no personal connections to the event are frequently affected.
When schools reopen after a traumatic event, students, teachers, and faculty frequently experience uneasiness and dread for the events that transpired. Such traumatic stress can have a negative impact on the learning atmosphere and students’ abilities.
