TIG Manual

The TIG Manual is the foundation of TIG training.  Ever changing, the Manual includes all of the training modules, including PowerPoints and handouts.  Successful completion of TIG training, that takes place over a one year period, ensures that all participants have a common knowledge base and philosophy. 

The Manual includes information from the six modules of the Core Curriculum:

Grief & Loss

Trauma

Suicide Risk & Intervention

Illness & Injury

School Violence

TIG Implementation


Module IV: Illness & Injury

Illness & Injury is the fourth module of the TIG Core Curriculum.  This module looks at serious illness in the family, with a focus on students with chronic or critical illnesses.  Participants gain an understanding of strategies to use in supporting students and their families. Special attention is given to strategies for teachers as well as helpful information for helping classmates deal with returning students.

The effect of a disaster or traumatic event goes far beyond its immediate devastation. Just as it takes time to reconstruct damaged buildings, it takes time to grieve and rebuild our lives. Life may not return to normal for months, or even years, following a disaster or traumatic event. There may be changes in living conditions that cause changes in day-to-day activities, leading to strains in relationships, changes in expectations, and shifts in responsibilities. These disruptions in relationships, roles, and routines can make life unfamiliar or unpredictable.
