External LinkMidcourse Correction - For over 20 years Midcourse Correction has run a weekend outdoor challenge camp for at risk youth. Our primary objective is to help incorrigible youth develop self-confidence and a higher concern for the effect their choices have on others. The goal is to be a preventative wake up call for youth that are on a self-destructive path.

 

Helping Students After a School Shooting

  • Try and keep routines as normal as possible. Kids gain security from the predictability of routine, including attending school.
  • Limit exposure to television and the news.

  • Be honest with kids and share with them as much information as they are developmentally able to handle.
  • Listen to kids’ fears and concerns.
  • Reassure kids that the world is a good place to be, but that there are people who do bad things.
  • Parents and adults need to first deal with and assess their own responses to crisis and stress.
  • Rebuild and reaffirm attachments and relationships.
