Participants will reflect on lessons learned during the Covid-19 pandemic. They will work to re-imagine our healing and wellness efforts moving forward to ensure every child has access to appropriate school-based social and emotional support. Participants will also deepen their awareness around equitable, healing-centered roadmaps for school re-openings that center our youth’s full experiences and strengths. Presenters will advance strategies to support clients and their families, as well as self-care for clinicians.
