Discussion Question: Role of the Counselor in the Community

Nine-year-old Wanda’s teacher notices that for  the past few weeks, Wanda has not been talking to her friends and is always  sitting alone in a corner. After talking to Wanda’s friends, the teacher finds  out that Wanda’s 16-year-old brother was killed in a gang war two months ago  and her parents have since separated. The teacher talks to Daphne, a counselor,  to see if there is anything she can do about Wanda. She wants to know if there  is any way in which children and families affected by exposure to violence can  be assisted with emotional impact of these events. The teacher also asks  Daphne, in the role of a counselor, to call Wanda’s parents to see if they would  be willing to talk with her about the death of their son, their separation, and  Wanda’s behavior at school. Daphne is not employed or affiliated with the  school.
