Description

PLEASE NOTE: Presentations by McLean School Nurse Liaison Project are open ONLY to staff from schools enrolled with MSNLP, or who are in the process of enrolling. People who are not school staff unfortunately may not attend.


Understanding Somatic Symptoms

Many of the physical symptoms children express and seek out the school nurse for are caused and/or exacerbated by psychological and emotional factors. This in-service will help school nurses, teachers, and other school staff to:

  • Understand the relationship between physical symptoms and mental/emotional stressors.
  • Recognize the potential for the development of Somatic Disorders, and take steps to reduce this risk.
  • Respond effectively to such symptoms to facilitate student’s emotional insight and empowerment.
  • Discuss and develop practical steps to take in the school and classroom setting to reduce the impact of these symptoms on the educational environment

Who should attend?

School nurses, counselors, and teachers from schools which are enrolled with the McLean School Nurse Liaison Project. Please note you MUST use your school email to register!

If your school or district is not enrolled, contact the organizer for enrollment information. You may go ahead and register for this event while the enrollment process is proceeding. Your school must complete enrollment prior to the event for you to attend.

If you are staff from the hosting school/district, you do not need to register to attend.
