A Mouse Click Away: Internet Resources for Students in Crisis in Geographically Isolated or Self-Sequestered Communities
Gary, Juneau Mahan
Journal of School Counseling, v8 n1 2010
The impact, incidence, prevalence, and severity of violence and trauma adversely affect students academically, behaviorally, emotionally, and socially. For students residing in geographically isolated or self-sequestered communities, trauma may be exacerbated when school counselors may be unprepared to respond effectively and timely because prevention and intervention options might be limited. Barriers to preparedness may be related to geographic, financial, cultural, religious, psychological, or linguistic reasons. This paper describes how a free, online repository of pre-screened crisis-specific counseling and guidance resources could be useful in supporting students' resiliency in geographically isolated or self-sequestered communities.
