Supporting Students Impacted by a Loved One's Substance Use featuring Christina Getz, Student Assistance Program Coordinator and Beth Lerario, Student Assistance Program Specialist.
The main rule in a family that is dealing with substance use is “Don’t Talk, Don’t Trust, and Don’t Feel.” That means that the students we are working with often suffer in silence. So how do we, as educators, identify these students and let them know that we are here to help? During this presentation you will learn about how to identify these students in your school and Children of Addiction (COA) Awareness Week. Most importantly, you can help to let these students know that they are not alone!
