This qualitative study explored the self-efficacy of OTs who may treat students exposed to a school shooting as well as which perceived treatment strategies the practitioners may utilize that potentially affect the clients’ mental-health outcomes. The results indicate a need for future research exploring entry-level OT curriculum and the need to further explore different factors, such as years of experience in relation to self-efficacy and trauma.
