Trauma-Informed School-Based Counseling With Children Living in Poverty

Mar 31, 2019 11:00am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 11:30am


Description

Approximately 20% of children in enrolled in elementary schools experience psychological distress, and 75% of these students receive inadequate mental health services and are at an increased risk of poor academic achievement. This poster is intended to educate counselors on the importance of TI-SBMHCI as an effective tool in addressing mental health needs of students who live in low-income communities and have experienced a traumatic event. Clinical implications for future research and practice will be discussed.

  • Participants will gain an understanding of common emotional and behavioral issues derived from experiencing a traumatic event elementary students endorse that live in low income communities.
  • Participants will gain an understanding of trauma-informed school-based mental health counseling services and effective strategies to support elementary school students’ emotional, behavioral and academic functionality following the experience of a traumatic event.
  • Participants gain practical knowledge on developing a partnership between a large school public system and a counselor education program, promoting community engagement that supports elementary school students and their families as well as counselors-in-training and research in counseling.
