Resources for Explaining Tragedies to Your Children
At CHC, we understand how challenging it is to quell the anxiety and fear that may affect your children in the aftermath of a shooting or similar traumatic event.
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
Do you have concerns about your child? We invite you to call our Clinical Services Coordinators at 650.688.3625 or email us at email@example.com to set up an initial Parent Consultation appointment.
