General Training Programs – Workshop VII

Helping Children and Adolescents Cope in an Uncertain World

Constantly hearing words like "war," "weapons of mass destruction," "high terror alert," and "bioterrorism" can be confusing and unsettling for children. As we enter a new era in our country, children are being exposed to more and more thanks to the media and internet. Kids have different ways of understanding information based on where they are developmentally. How a 6 year old understands the words he/she is hearing versus how a 14 year old interprets the news is very different, leading us to wonder how we help our children feel safe. This workshop gives teachers the skills and strategies of how to best answer children's questions about these times, and how to settle their fears.
