Classroom Crisis Counseling in the Aftermath of School Violence.
Paris, Norma Jean
Numerous counseling needs are generated in the aftermath of school crises, particularly crises involving school violence. Meeting these needs can be assisted when school psychologists involve classroom teachers in the planning and implementation of crisis counseling. This paper provides information about a crisis counseling intervention model (Mini-marathon Groups) that was developed by Terr (1992). It states that this model is particularly suitable for school psychologists to use when providing crisis training and consultation to classroom teachers. The Mini-marathon Group has five components: (1) providing facts and dispelling rumors, (2) sharing stories, (3) sharing symptoms, (4) empowerment, and (5) closure. The paper suggests that the use of this model will facilitate the goal of helping students work their way through the process of recovery. (Author/JDM)
