Nassau Counselors’ Association Presents the 2019 Counselors, Administrators and Parents (CAP) Conference: Trauma Sensitive Schools


Responding to the NYS Mental Health and Counseling mandates, join us as we explore ways to build schools that address the social-emotional needs of all students.  By implementing trauma-sensitive policies, procedures, and practices we can learn how to create an environment where students and faculty feel heard, protected, and safe.
