Part of school crisis recovery and renewal is shifting our attention from the systems in which we work (e.g., high school or college) to the students who navigate the systems. Many students who enter postsecondary institutions have experienced grief, death, and/or crisis in their K-12 context and it comes out in college. Or, our students experience grief, death and crisis while at college. Either way, there is a lot to learn from our colleagues engaging in postsecondary grief student support; SCRR is pleased to partner with Inner Harbor for three intensive workshops to get us started. Collectively, these workshops will:
*Offer practical suggestions for working with grieving students while in college
*Explore how we can all contribute to a culture that promotes the expression of grief as a normal, natural process
*Provide practical exercises and activities to promote the expression of grief and encourage meaning making after a significant loss.
While designed for college staff and faculty, including mental health practitioners as well as residential living staff, professors and anyone else working with students and student leaders on campus and k-12 student support professionals, these three 2-hour workshops are open to anyone interested (including student campus leaders!).
Note: you may attend one, two or all of the workshops; they are not sequential and will be recorded.
Part 1 on February 3 "Setting the Stage: Grief on College Campuses"
Part 2 on February 10 - "A Deeper Dive: Meaning Making of Grief with College Students"
Part 3 on March 25 "Connecting Student and Systems: Supporting Middle and High School Teachers and Staff to Prepare Grieving Students for College"
