COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS | Troubling Trends in Student Culture: What Public School Resource Officers & Social Workers Want You to Know
With public schools returning to in-person learning, social workers and School Resource Officers (SROs) are seeing troubling trends likely exacerbated by the ongoing pandemic. Increased violence, frequent substance use, waning mental health – these evolving challenges are requiring social workers and SROs to take a more front-lines approach and to assess other contributing factors beyond COVID-19 – such as local and state policies, social media and home environments. Join us for an eye-opening discussion with seasoned SROs and school social workers as they share insider perspectives and their top insights for families.
