Due to a recent school suicide in Indiana, Centerstone wants to make sure the resources to talk to your children and teens about recent traumatic events are readily available. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network has dozens of helpful articles to help parents and teachers – use search terms like “tip sheet” or “school violence” in the search field to find links to great articles. https://www.nctsn.org/resources.
And on a local level, we are offering counseling for children and teens:
Helping Children Cope with Crisis – Centerstone is offering free sessions, from December 27 through January 31, for children and teens in the Richmond area.
Teens Seeking Safety Group Sessions (for ages 12-17) help teens manage past and present trauma, and Art Therapy for Trauma Recovery (for ages 6-17) helps children and teens process trauma triggers due to recent tragedy.
Call (765) 983-8000 for the schedule and to register.
