Sandy Hook ElementaryThe violent loss of so many young children, their teachers, and school psychologist, in Connecticut has us all feeling yet again the impact of another horrible and heartbreaking tragedy. Among the many questions that arise, including “why?”, parents and professionals working with children are asking how best to reassure and support kids in the wake of such violence. The Canadian Association of School Psychologists recommends the resources available from the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) in the U.S. including information about helping children cope, talking to children about violence, and tips for reinforcing school safety.
