Building Resilience in All

In this edition:
Whether it's a new roster of students, each bringing their own unique needs to your classroom, or the change of seasons and shorter days affecting your patients' mental health, it's critical to keep your own health in mind as well. Starr senior trainer Erin Reed is excited to launch her Practicing Resilience online course later this year. For now, read her first set of tips for implementing self-care in your organization.

Is your school working towards becoming trauma-informed? How are you involving parents in the process? Learn Jean West's best practices for making sure schools give parents what they need to know.

No matter the setting, escalated behavior requires patience, empathy, and curiosity. Read how Jenny Sloan recently explained the nuances of de-escalation to police officers, and how you may be able to implement these same best practices in your care.

Do you know if there is grief walking through your halls? More importantly, do these students have a friend or group they can lean on for help? Download Linda Duran's free pamphlet that can help in times of loss and grief.
