As schools reopen, both children and adults may confront coronavirus anxieties. The Center for Safe and Secure Schools at Harris County Department of Education invites you to virtually attend a free webinar with national partner Scott Poland, Ed.D.: “School Re-entry After Covid-19: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Managing Anxiety and Promoting Social and Emotional Wellness.”
Poland is a national school crisis team leader and president of the National Association of School Psychologists. The webinar is set for June 10, 1 p.m. CST through Facebook: www.facebook.com/NSUPsychology.
The session focuses on helping school staff with potential anxieties about school resuming. It provides action steps for school administrators as they plan for reopening schools.
Social distancing, face masks, school cleanliness and testing are important practices, but Poland’s presentation centers on helping staff and students face psychological challenges.
