How to Talk With Kids About Traumatic Events

Tuesday, October 4th –  6:30-7:30 pm

Have you ever had a moment when a child asks you a question and all you can think is “what do I say to that”? These moments happen more often than we think and can feel overwhelming. This is especially true after they experience or hear about scary events happening to others. Children may have questions we aren’t sure how to answer or find themselves scared about what happens next. Join us to learn tips for talking with children after traumatic events.
