The unthinkable tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012 has shaken us all. At Children’s Health Council we know families in our community are trying to quell the anxiety and fear that may be affecting your children in the aftermath of the shootings and similar traumatic events.
CHC’s pledge to our community is to do whatever it takes to ensure the safety and well being of all children. We hope families will find our article, “Helping Your Child Deal with Traumatic Events” written by CHC clinicians, to be a helpful resource.
We would also like to share a few more articles you may find of help during this difficult time:
- Helping Children After a Disaster, The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
- Comforting Children in a Disaster, SesameStreet.org
- Talking to Children About the School Shooting, Huffington Post
