LaSalle invites expert to discuss crisis in school violence

GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

LaSalle High School held a discussion about the crisis of violence in our schools and communities on Monday.

Dr. Daniel Nelson, medical director of the Child Psychiatry Unit at Children's Hospital and its National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement spoke about crisis during violent situations, hosted by LaSalle's parent organization.

Parents of LaSalle students, as well as parents from Mother of Mercy and McAuley high schools and neighboring elementary schools, were all invited do the discussion.

Dr. Nelson is an expert in counseling in crisis settings. He has been a member of teams assisting in the wake of the terrorist bomb attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995; the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City, and the mass shooting in a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., on July 20, 2012.

The National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement at Children's Hospital was established in 2005 with initial support from the September 11th Children's Fund and the National Philanthropic Trust and supplemental funding from Procter & Gamble.

It was created to promote an appreciation of the role schools can serve to support students, staff and families at times of crisis and loss, in addition to training of individuals in school-related professional education programs in the areas of crisis and loss, and serve as a resource for information.
