National Child Traumatic Stress Network toolkit

From the National Child Traumatic Stress Network. Schools across the US have had to make sudden and considerable changes to adapt to the challenges and uncertainty brought on by COVID-19. For many educators, this has meant transforming the way they teach and connect with students, learning new skills and technology platforms, and in some cases transitioning to a new working environment all while grappling with personal stressors about their own health and families. As some educators struggle to cope with both professional and personal challenges during this time, these struggles can contribute to feelings of anxiety, depression, or symptoms of secondary traumatic stress. The NCTSN has resources to help administrators support the well-being of educators and to help educators reduce the impact of stressors during this difficult time.
