Supporting Children After Major Events

Parents and carers do all they can to protect their children from harm. However, life can bring major events that have an impact on our children’s lives like moving home, changing schools, family separation, divorce or the death of family member or a loved pet. Then there are events that are out of our control like the destruction and loss through natural disasters. 

As a result, our children may experience the hardship that significant events bring, or witness horrors through the media that they aren't mature enough to manage effectively on their own. 

This webinar supports parents and caregivers by exploring: 
• What constitutes a major event for a child
• Ways children might react after a major event
• Deciding if a child needs professional care
• What parents and caregivers can do to assist the recovery process
