It is a BEAUTIFUL graphic! So excited about using this for training and practice :)
Tour boat. Along for the ride and watching what happens along the way
Tour boat for me means: helping to point out the sites along the way for others...especially children...also having to plan interesting activities for the little people in my life that are on the tour with me!
age or grade level
creates a victim mentality and response
Students may think they are "supposed" feel worse than they do and act out based on that
Timing of response. Different people need differing levels of support at different times.
different populations have different needs
Inefficient allocation of resources. OK schools are already resource-strapped, and we want to make sure the students who really need supports are able to access them.
Not everyone considers a stressful event “traumatic.” everyone’s response to an event is different. some people live in stressful situations all that is normal for them, not perceived as traumatic. .
Moves away from “normalcy” to abnormally and assumes that individuals aren’t resilient.
taxes the system in a way that is not sustainable and delivers services that are not appropriate to each student to deliver intensive supports for every individual. Like providing chemo for anyone who walks into the dr office with a fever.
Focus can look like trauma is expected.
Thank you all for sharing your thoughts! Great responses!

We’ve had many secondary-age students take this time to involve themselves in philanthropy and outreach
some students perform better away from the constraints of “traditional school” e.g. sleep schedules, etc.
I've seen students have more time to improve their physical health by exercising (my daughter included).
Having a break from the social chaos of middle school has been a significant factor for my own daughter. Her attitude has been significantly improved in all settings
I have seen students teach grandparents how to use Zoom to have a family reunion.
My office doesn't have a window so I don't see light during the day. Having my desk in front of a window uplifts my spirits.
Helping parents with non traditional tasks and just inquiring into their welfare.
I am able to get more work done without the distraction of sharing an office with 3 others.
Yes! Excellent responses! More opportunities to get work done and do the work we love!
I feel that this has been an opportunity to mitigate the burnout that so many of us feel. Personally, this time away has given me the chance to miss so many aspects of our day-to-day work
I think we've been provided with an opportunity to really evaluate our priorities professionally and personally.
