When Trauma Hits the Whole Community: Supporting Very Young Children and their Parents

Mar 29, 2014 9:00 am -

Event Description

When Trauma Hits the Whole Community:

Supporting Very Young Children and their Parents and Caregivers

Sponsored by the Boston Institute for the Development of Infants and Parents and the Freedman Center for Child & Family Development

This conference will present a day of talks and panels by experts in the field of community trauma and disaster mental health. The effects of disasters, regardless of their origins, can be long lasting and can result in traumatic reactions for those directly involved as well as witnesses. Children can be among the most vulnerable to the impact of a disaster. In this program, participants will learn how young children are affected by trauma, and what interventions can promote healing and resilience. Attention will also be paid to how to support parents and caregivers, as their reactions to trauma often mediate the effect of disaster upon children.
