Trending Topic: Coping With National Tragedies

When national tragedies occur, children and adults may feel anger, anxiety, fear, and confusion. Having conversations about national tragedies with children can be difficult, but it is important that they take place so that feelings of fear or anxiety can be alleviated. To ensure that adults facilitate successful conversations with children, they also need to cope with their feelings of fear and anxiety. Successful conversations with children around tragedies can not only help children manage their emotions, it helps create an emotionally safe environment.  In the wake of the recent Las Vegas shootings, here are a few resources to help start conversations that will help children and adults cope during a national tragedy.

New Resources

  • Be Her Resource:A Toolkit About School Resource Officers and girls of Color is a report by Center on Poverty and Inequality and Georgetown Law about the presence of School Resource Officer (SROs) in schools. While intended to increase school safety, SRO has also been associated with increased surveillance and criminalization of students — especially students of color. Little data exists, however, on the experiences of girls of color. To close this gap, the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality and the National Black Women’s Justice Institute engaged in research to examine the relationship between girls of color and SROs.
  • Bullying Prevention is a newsletter by GLSEN about school-based approached to bulling prevention.
  • Anti-Bullying Policies and Enumeration: An Info brief for Local Education Agencies  is a resource by the CDC  explaining enumeration and discussing anti-bullying policies in different states.
