In response to the recent horrific shooting at Michigan State University, it is understandable for employees and their families to have many reactions. The following resources may be helpful for you and your family.

ESP hosted an online live event Tuesday, February 14th to provide information on common responses to traumatic events, strategies for coping, and available resources for employees and their families. The Educational Crisis Management Briefing recording is now available.
