Abstract

As I write, wildfires have devastated much of California. Those in Houston are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey, and those in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos, and Dominica were hard hit by a combination of hurricanes Irma and Maria. Students and faculty at the COAMFTE-accredited program in Las Vegas are dealing with the trauma of a mass murder. Our program’s time spent dealing with Hurricane Irma, which largely passed us by, begins to seem almost too minor to mention. Yet, this was the most serious hurricane to threaten Florida in 25 years, and coping with the circumstance was a test for our master’s students in particular, many of whom had only arrived on campus three weeks previously.
