Terrorism, Trauma, and Tragedies: A Counselor's Guide to Preparing and Responding.
Bass, Debra D., Ed.; Yep, Richard, Ed.
Conceived as a resource for counselors, teachers, administrators, parents and others, this is a hands-on book that provides useful information and guidance on strategies, techniques and plans that have worked well in addressing the trauma of a tragic event. This book is a collection of original material, news stories, handouts, and even adaptations of recent conference presentations. Lessons learned from counselors who provided services to those directly affected by the terrorist attacks are included as well as first-hand accounts by those who have dealt with school shootings and other tragedies. This handbook also includes an update from the Counseling Department of Columbine High School and an inside look at how a grieving community in New Jersey gave birth to what it is now known as "Megan's Law," which requires notifying neighbors when paroled sex offenders move into an area. The book is divided into five sections: Personal Reflections of September 11th, 2001; Responding to Terrorism; Shootings and Other Tragedies in the Schools; Counseling Strategies, Coping Tips; and Wars, Planes, Crashes and More.
