WSIC SHOW: MENTAL FITNESS MATTERS with Host Tracy Alston | How To Emotionally Prepare For The New School Year when it’s pretty safe to assume that majority of schools have reopened and everyone is getting settled in and returning to what we all will consider our New Normal we still have to recognize with the new normal comes changes and adjustments, But we all know, it’s very rare that changes come without challenges. And when we think about the emotional challenges that everyone faces during a normal school year, well now we’ve entered a school year during a global crisis. So all across the country districts and schools are having to consider the impact of these challenges as they are continuing to develop their plans for supporting students and staff as they have returned to school and throughout the year.
I am honored to have some forward thinkers as my guests today. They have developed an Emotional Reintegration program.

The dramatic and swift changes caused by COVID 19 in our K-12 schools uprooted our norms, resulting in not only tactical changes in how we educate but caused emotional turmoil amongst our students, teachers, and administrators. The macro-level health concerns that existed previously in our communities have been compounded by COVID, leaving many struggling emotionally to deal with the changes.
Responding to the emotional health concerns in schools requires a systematic solution. The Emotional Reintegration program was designed to address that need during COVID. The 3-Hour program equips teachers, administrators, and students with skills to identify their emotions, deal with the impact of what they are feeling, and learn coping skills to help manage their emotional response during times of crisis. While COVID was the motivator for the program, the lifelong skills are rooted in years of emotional wellness expertise. We cannot always control what happens in life, but the Emotional Reintegration Program can help our teachers, administrators, and students navigate the changes coming their way.
If you are concerned about the emotional struggles in your school, we encourage school administrators to contact us about school-wide Emotional Reintegration Program solutions. The flexible delivery model offers School-Specific Events or Facilitator Certification Programs for school professionals.
