Promoting School Preparedness, Community Resilience, and Recovery in the Face of Adversity: Part 4 – Recovery and Maintenance


Schools and communities can mobilize and take action in the weeks, months, and years following community-wide trauma, adversity, or stressors. Undoubtedly, ongoing and future crises are likely to occur, so proactive planning and preparedness is best approached as an iterative, long-term process. This session will provide practical information about best practices and key resources to promote family-school-community collaboration for collective resilience during the long-term recovery and maintenance phase of an experience with collective trauma. We will share trauma training resources for school professionals and community members, explain strategies and complementary resources for data-driven, iterative learning and planning, and feature local and state examples in the Southeast and nationally.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Increase understanding of trauma training policies and resources for school professionals and community members during the recovery and maintenance period.
  2. Increase familiarity with strategies and resources for data-driven, iterative learning and planning for long-term recovery and maintenance of community preparedness.
  3. Promote cross-state networking and shared learning about strategies to promote recovery from community trauma and maintenance of proactive, data-driven preparedness for the long-term.
