About this conference
Environments for Recovery: How schools and other educational settings can respond following critical incidents
Thursday 29 June
Much as we wish to protect children and young people from experiencing potentially traumatic events, there will be times when that is not possible. Inevitably some events will affect all, or a large part, of an educational community such as a school, college or early years setting. We refer to such events as Critical Incidents.
It can be overwhelming when an event affects not just an individual, but large groups of children and young people, as well as those around them such as their peers, families, and professionals. Many of those affected, including staff, may be distressed and have some difficulties initially. However, over time many will recover, and educational communities have tremendous potential to provide precisely the sort of environment that best supports recovery.
This event will describe evidence-based principles that can guide the response to a critical incident. The voices of children and young people who have experienced critical incidents will be highlighted as they provide their own ideas about what helped them recover.
