COVID-19 has caused immeasurable disruption upon the educational, social, psychological and financial well-being of international school communities worldwide. As part of a comprehensive international school recovery plan, it is important for international school communities to understand how to respond to, and recover from large scale, universal crises like pandemics by considering their communities’ social and psychological needs as part of their school’s long-term recovery. Acknowledging that the road ahead for AISA school communities will be paved with difficult decisions, this training is designed to provide school leadership with a better understanding of resilience strategies that can be used to improve their community’s long-term recovery toward the “new normal”. Special consideration will be devoted to the concepts of compassion fatigue, stress, trauma and grief/loss brought caused by COVID-19.
