Recent events underscore the need for school personnel to be informed and prepared to help their students in the aftermath of natural disasters, accidents and violence. Teachers and school counselors are often called upon to provide guidance to the students’ parents. Educators can be invaluable in helping parents assist their children by educating them on what to expect in the aftermath of exposure to trauma and how to cope.
