Helping Children in Times of Crisis

The Psychological Services Department wanted to pass along some information to our readers in the wake of the most recent school shooting in Florida.  Each time we hear about events of mass violence, we hope it will be the last.

This post from last year provides information from several sources on helping children deal with times of stress, including how to talk with them about media coverage.  We would like to remind our readers, as we have before, that just because children aren’t talking about these events, doesn’t mean they’re not thinking about them.

We hope that you find this information helpful. If you feel that your child needs additional support, Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools student services personnel are here to help.
