As school counselors, we know our students will have questions and concerns about recent events in the news. It is our role to help parents and caregivers with tools and resources to navigate sensitive conversations. As your professional organization, AzSCA recommends the following tools and resources to support your work during these difficult times:

Talking to Children About Terrorist Attacks and School and Community Shootings in the News (Article)
Fred Rogers Institute recommendations for talking to children about difficult things in the news (Instagram Post)

If you have recommendations for resources you would like to share, please submit them to Brenda Vargas, Chair of the AzSCA Board of Directors, at
