I am in a school district where the community has is a large prison system, challenging drug culture and high poverty. Needless to say our teachers and staff work with students who bring ACEs to school with them every day. What I would like to have is 3-4 questions that can be asked in conversation to help teachers/staff "unpack" before going home after a day where a student was in crisis. Ideally this would be facilitated by a school counselor or social worker. In reality, this isn’t always possible. My vision is for a colleague to be able to ask these questions to help a staff person leave the stress of the day behind or at least process the personal impact of a crisis event before leaving school.
Any suggestions on what those questions might be? They need to be sufficiently simple to allow anybody to lead this process, yet deep enough to make a difference.
