Too Much, Too Ugly, Too Similar
A school violence death is an incredible tragedy and devastating loss in so many ways. The ripple effects are far reaching and deeply impactful.
We all have assumptions about the world and our lives. These assumptions can be something like ‘my kids are safe (I am safe) at school and nothing bad can happen there, or ‘I am safe in my community.’ When the assumptions are shattered we must make a choice to engage in denial (It won’t happen again), psychologically deteriorate into feelings of helplessness or hopelessness, avoid the situation by leaving, or develop a ‘New Normal’. Additional information is available from the Professional Development Day Flyer. Program information, room assignments and schedule are available here.
