Supportive adults are vital to the social-emotional health of students now more than ever. We must continue to create and develop restorative strategies to assist students through the loss and transition within their academic and social spheres. COVID-19 has challenged students and families in balancing health, academics, and mental and emotional wellbeing. This session will discuss practical ways in which counselors, faculty and staff can best support students and families through COVID-19.
- Identify opportunities and events to engage students in while adhering to governance and guidelines presented by your school district and other governmental officials.
- Recognize your students’ needs for more intensive or individualized counseling.
- Recognize the need to expand your resources and partner with additional school and agency staff.
