Lessons Learned from Parkland
This Webinar will provide an overview of the school social work response to the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida which claimed the lives of 17 students and faculty – the largest loss ever in a school shooting. With no manual to guide the recovery efforts of such a large scale response in a huge school District – 6th largest school district in the nation, many lessons were learned. Some of these lessons will be shared: from the perspective of organizational leadership; clinical first responders, for students as well as for staff; and community member (parent). A segment of the Webinar will highlight what was done particularly well.
