Abstract:
The talk will focus on data from Marysville School District employees (N = 597) surveyed six months after the shooting at MP high school. The shooting had widespread impact on emotional responses, interactions with students and colleagues, coping strategies, and perceptions of intergroup relations on employees throughout the district. The results reveal notable differences by education level, school demographics (i.e., schools with more Native student reported greater negative affect), and psychological closeness to victims and families.
