CCA Mourns with Newtown…
Responding to Trauma and Violence at Sandy Hook Elementary School
In the wake of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, we have all felt a variety of reactions and emotions in the past several days, both on a personal level and a professional level. The events that unfolded will leave a permanent imprint on our hearts and may even forever change our lives’ trajectory.
I would venture to say that all of us have been compelled to help and support, not only the Newtown community, but our own personal communities and our own families. This tragedy has struck a chord in all of our hearts and we think of the families, parents and children surrounding us. How can I as a counselor make a positive difference in this world? How can I live my life in honor of these innocent victims of one man’s rampage? Already in the past days, as well as the coming weeks, months and years, there are and will continue to be countless ways that you may choose to support Newtown’s families or your own local communities.
As the CCA Executive Board and Newtown-area CCA members continue to identify needs in the community, we will keep members informed in a timely manner.
