Supporting Children after Major Events
Adults do all they can to protect children from harm. However, life can bring events that are out of our control like the destruction and devastation of a natural disaster or the loss of life though illness or violence. As a result, 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.
Parents and care givers may feel unsure about how to help children who experience the hardship of a major event, however, with information and resources, they can play a major role in supporting children to recover and resume their life.
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 care givers can do to assist the recovery process
