ACA Calls for More School Counselors to Support Children Affected by Gun Trauma

by User Not Found | Mar 01, 2018
On Tuesday, Feb. 27, the Executive Committee of the American Counseling Association adopted a resolution supporting and highlighting the role that school counselors play in addressing the anxiety, stress, and trauma students experience after a school shooting. The resolution underscores the vital role that school counselors play in helping students cope with adverse conditions.

ACA calls for all U.S. school systems and districts to implement the recommended ratio of one school counselor to 250 students, in order to adequately meet the mental-health-care needs of students. ACA supports mechanisms for students, parents, teachers, and school personnel to be supported by mental-health-care professionals and stands ready, willing, and able to help craft solutions for the emotional needs of those affected by these terrible violence-related tragedies.
