Services to schools
An incident can sometimes traumatize a group of learners, or even the whole school. The death, serious injury or illness of a learner or teacher can be devastating to the school community. Consequently, it may be impossible for the one school counsellor or psychologist to handle this on his/her own. There are benefits to the affected individuals receiving trauma counselling on-site.
