Dr. Gortych covered a lot of ground with the counselors, from advice on how to help students and colleagues who are suffering from emotional trauma, to providing reference materials, to suggesting books to read with the children.
Dr. Gortych, who has experience working with communities throughout Greater Boston, closed her workshop complimenting the Everett Public Schools for all of the positive experiences that are provided to the students by the School Committee, administration, and staff.
