Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors has launched an online version of its school reentry program The Journey Back. The program, used in over 106 hospitals across the country, was developed in collaboration with experts in burn care, education, trauma, child development, mental health, fire prevention and families who have been through a traumatic burn or loss, to consider all aspects of a successful return to school. The online program allows for teachers, school professionals, parents, and peers to quickly access information to assist a child in the school reentry process after a burn injury or traumatic loss.
Phoenix Society encourages burn care professionals, mental health professionals, fire safety educators, teachers and family members to use The Journey Back program and offer it as an option when any child returns to school after a burn injury or traumatic loss. The complete program can
be accessed online at no cost at www.phoenix-society.org/journeyback.
This program was developed through the collaborative efforts of a number of fire service organizations and corporate partners, including the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
