With the anniversary of September 11 near, it is an important time to be mindful of how we each process our emotions and the manner in which we help those in our care.
While these resources are specific to September 11, they are also appropriate for effectively coping with other traumatic events.
Below is a link from the National Association of School Psychologists: NASP Resources for 9/11. The link provides information on Fostering Resilience and Optimism; Tips for Parents and Caregivers, Educators, and Youth; Fostering an Attitude of Gratitude, just to name a few.
Here, too, is a link to the American School Counselor Association website: ASCA Resources for September 11. This link provides information on Talking to Your Child About September 11, Lesson Plans, and more.
To my way of thinking, whenever we can promote/nurture resiliency, optimism, and perseverence when faced with adversity it is beneficial to us all.
I wish you well.
