Understanding the Impact of Traumatic Events and How to Help Those Affected
: Andy McNiel, MA
Mass shootings, major weather events, earthquakes, and wild fires are common headlines today. Along with the death and devastation that these occurrences bring to communities, many are left to pick up the pieces in their wake. It is important for those of us in the human service field to understand the impact of traumatic events and how to help those affected by these life-altering events. This webinar will look the various levels of effect of traumatic events on both adults and children. Some of the challenges communities face as they rebuild and how human service professionals can support those grieving significant losses due to the traumatic event will be explored. Certain universal realities of grief and how these inform the practice for providing mental and emotional support to grieving individuals of all ages will be considered. Images of traumatic events play over and over on all forms of media outlets, many viewed by children. Special considerations for caring for children and teenagers will be included, as well as ideas professionals can share with parents to provide support to their children.
