Helping Children Cope with Traumatic Events

As adults, dealing with trauma is difficult. Think about if you were a child.


Wheaton College, in the United States, created this valuable resource after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary.


It provides practical guidance for caregivers—including parents, family members, teachers, clergy, and volunteers—on how to help support children after a traumatic event. It also provides readers with an overview of common reactions to violent acts, including a breakdown of common signs and symptoms by age. Concrete steps for caring for children’s emotional and spiritual needs in the wake of a traumatic event are also provided.
