O.K., so I watched Sixty Minutes and Oprah graced us with her presence and had some experts on with powerful insight I thought. Since I am chairman of a committee that is working on building communication with our students and parents in crisis, I found it useful information.
The main conclusion that I have drawn from this was that working with students that have been exposed to severe trauma instead of asking What can I do to help?- ask what happened to you?”. And then you listen, and you care. It makes sense. The sooner that that student has someone on their side, they can begin to heal. ( Note the trauma has stopped in order for this to happen)
