In this post, we’ll explore responding to community violence/trauma, creativity in counseling, and bullying, as discussed in Chapters 11 and 13. Here are some ideas for your post to get you started:
- What are the 7 core principles of the FEMA National Disaster Recovery Framework?
- Creative thinking can help bring people together and support communities. For example, the Newtown Recovery and Resiliency Team (NRRT) and the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) collaborated to help a community after a school shooting. Who would you collaborate with to help support a community? How could you creatively support a community?
- Bullying encompasses a variety of forms including individual, group, and pack bullying, and it takes place in person or online as well as through emails, chat rooms, social networking services, text messages, instant messages, website postings, blogs, or a combination of these mediums. How would you address bullying with a client? If you were a clinical mental health counselor, would you work with the school system? How would you handle a parent who said they did not want to address the bullying for fear of it getting worse?
