Register Here for the Welcome Back to Campus Webinar

Schools in China have been back on campus since May 2020. They have learned many lessons, most of them the hard way,about what it requires mentally, emotionally, and physically to be on campus after Distance Learning for both staff and students.

In this webinar, Janice Holland and her team will talk about their experience, and the mental and emotional state of the staff and students as they return to campus both short and long term.

During the webinar we will share:

  • Practical suggestions on how to support staff and students, as well as helpful activities and resources.
  • Importance of long term strategies.
  • What was not helpful as we navigating next steps during this unprecedented time.
  • Insight and tools so other schools can be as equipped as possible in sustainable social emotional care and support.

The return to school is anything but "normal". The students and staff have varying degrees of capacity for managing this new reality. As counselors, and the mental health advocates on the ground, it is up to us to provide support and resources, which can often feel inadequate. We are hopeful this webinar will help others feel more prepared and confident as you enter the uncharted waters of life after distance learning.

Speaker: Janice Holland, Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S)

She has presented at the ISCA Annual Conference 2019 in Belgium on Trauma, as well as the 2021 virtual Collaborative.
