Walz, Garry R., Ed.; Kirkman, Chris J.
Following the horrific experiences of September 11th, 2001, efforts were undertaken to gather information to provide counselors with the help they need for counseling those in the face of tragedy. With this publication, information about trauma and grief counseling becomes readily available. Guides for responding to tragedies are included from national organizations including the National Board for Certified Counselors, the American Counseling Association, the National Association of School Psychologists, and the American School Counselor Association. Three articles are included from counselors who have assisted with the Ground Zero relief efforts. This book provides an opportunity to review how counselors responded to the disaster, and to discuss the teamwork, organizational input, and preparation needed to deal with crisis counseling.
