What:Â Helping Children Cope in the Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy
The worst storm to hit New Jersey in any of our lifetimes was Hurricane Sandy. Children and youth are not immune to the stresses caused by natural disasters. Hearing about this powerful storm with unpredictable outcomes may have elicited a great deal of anxiety. Sometimes anxiety presents in the months following the aftermath. Learn about possible fears and reactions your children may be experiencing. Learn about behaviors that may indicate that your child may be suffering from this traumatic event. Please join us at this interactive workshop as we discuss how parents/caregivers can help children and youth
through the process of recovery. The most important adults in a childâ€™s life can be instrumental in facilitating healthy adjustments in the weeks and months following the hurricane. Refreshments will be served.
