Helping Children Following School Violence
Please see the attached document for information on helping children cope in the aftermath of the school shooting in Connecticut that has been provided by the central office of the Traumatic Loss Coalition for Youth at UMDNJ. It may be helpful to send these talking points home to parents and post them on your website to assist them in talking with their children about this tragedy.
Please remind youth, teens and young adults to talk with trusted adults if they are experiencing upset, and point those that are between the ages of 10 and 25 to call the 2ND Floor Helpline – a 24/7 phone resource. Youth can also email the 2ND Floor if they would rather use their computers to communicate their feelings or concerns. The number for 2ND Floor is 888-222-2228 www.2ndfloor.org.
Please don’t hesitate to call me or the TLC Central office at 732-235-2810 with any questions or concerns.
