Responding to Schools in Crisis: Considerations Following the Sandy Hook Tragedy

The February 27 Responding to Schools in Crisis: Considerations Following the Sandy Hook Tragedy is FILLED! Because of overwhelming interest, we are offering this same workshop again on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28.

Led by Dr. Robin Gurwitch and Gregory Thomas, this workshop for administrators, school resource officers and counselors will be held at the Memorial Museum on Thursday, February 28. Dr. Gurwitch, an internationally recognized expert on the impact of trauma and disaster on children and ways to increase resilience, has responded to disasters around the world, from the Oklahoma City bombing to the school shooting in Newtown. Thomas, one of the nation’s top school security experts, has assisted schools and communities across the United States in the assessment of their levels of emergency preparedness.

The workshop will include components of an effective emergency preparedness plan, including shooters in the school, threat assessment, trauma reactions in children and their impact on learning, integrating security officers into school mental health interventions, and the importance of self-care as a component of emergency preparedness.

Lt. Governor Todd Lamb, Chair, Oklahoma Commission on School Security, will provide opening remarks.

This workshop is provided free of charge by the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum with the generous support of SandRidge Energy.
