COVID-19: Where to next? 

There is no doubt that the experience of COVID-19 has been disruptive, even though in Australia we have avoided the most severe restrictions and large loss of life that has been (and continues to be) the case in other parts of the world.  While restrictions are now being lifted, the impact is still being felt.  News events including ‘spikes’ and ‘second waves’ continue to have the potential to 'trigger' a fear response. 

While schools are back to full operation, some processes remain changed as a reminder of what might have been (or may still be the possibility).  Across wider society generally, restrictions are starting to be lifted.  So how do we move from a crisis response to a more sustainable long-term approach? 

The attached AISWA School Psychology Service (ASPS) article is designed to assist schools to understand the process.
