CALPCC Responds to the Recent Shootings

We extend our deepest sympathy to the individuals and families touched by this violence and we encourage all who carry the burden of these tragic losses and injustices to seek professional support. CALPCC stands willing to assist with the healing that must take place in our nation in order for everyone to heal and move forward together. We encourage counselors to assist their clients with the resources they need to cope with the anger, anxiety, sorrow, and hopelessness and to reach out to each other to provide support. A printed resource that counselors and their clients may find helpful is, “When Terrible Things Happen - What You May Experience” from the National Center for PTSD.
