At Broadway Bound Kids, we are committed to the implementation of Social Emotional Learning with a trauma-informed lens to help students cope with distressing times, both in the world at large and in their own lives. We've compiled a list of resources to help provide tools to manage stress, fear, anger, and other feelings that stem from scary world events. We hope these tools will be helpful for members of our community seeking tactics and coping mechanisms. Click the blue titles to read the articles:
