I found that several organizations have resources that can be helpful to anyone seeking to console or provide some process to deal with shock. After 9-11, the American Red Cross developed the award-winning curriculum titled "Facing Fear: Helping Children Cope with Terrorism and Tragic Events" K-12.” It is free on the Canadian Red Cross website.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has posted several articles on its mental health pages, including “Coping with a Traumatic Event,” “Self Care Tips for Dealing with Stress,” and “How Families Can Help Children Cope with Fear and Anxiety.”
The American Academy of Pediatrics has also assembled a collection of resources on their healthychildren.org home page.
Please let us know if you have found any other helpful resources. You can leave a comment with this blog or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
