Mass Shooting Response and Recovery for Staff

This newsletter from the Los Angeles Unified School District Student Health and Human Services discusses psychological first aid (PFA).  PFA is an evidence-informed approach for assisting children, adolescents, adults, and families in the immediate aftermath of a critical incident, disaster, or terrorism. PFA is designed to reduce the initial distress caused by traumatic events and to foster short and long-term adaptive functioning.
