When an unexpected tragedy occurs- a school shooting, a suicide, family violence, or a natural disaster, a sudden death, everyone is thrown off course. Children's sense of safety and trust is destroyed at that moment. They are scared, they are hurt, they are emotional. They have a lot of uncomfortable and sometimes unfamiliar feelings. Unless their external and internal experiences are talked about and tended to by caring adults, the wounds may last a lifetime, interfering with their mental health.
This resource provides a guide to helping children cope and heal from tragedy. With the help of a healing workbook and the concept of "power protectors" that are used with imagery to master feelings of helplessness, therapists and counselors will be able to facilitate difficult discussions, while also promoting the early stages of trauma recovery.
