Helping Kids Cope: Speaking to Children about School Violence

 Beyond those most closely affected, tragedies radiate outward and impact friends, schools, communities and to some degree, all of us, as we help children try to understand this loss of life.

The Child Study Center is part of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN), whose mission is to raise the standard of care and improve access to services for traumatized children, their families and communities throughout the United States.

For information on providing support to children following school violence and tragedies, see additional links on the right side.
