Today’s shooting in Broward was a tragedy. And while it is easy to get political about gun rights when school shootings happen. We must remember who is affected most by these incidents: the students, teachers, and families at those schools.
At a meeting recently, I was able to learn about TF-CBT, which is trauma focused therapy. For those students, teachers, and families in Broward affected by the shooting, and other families and teachers that are traumatized by this senseless act, remember to care for yourselves in this time. We say that self care is important on a regular basis. Caring for yourself and your family as you navigate life after trauma is just as important. Give yourself time to heal. Heal with each other. And seek out resources that are there to help you.
