December/January 2024Vol. 24, No. 10Multilingual Trauma Resources
The Child Mind Institute has a webpage dedicated to resources on trauma and grief, which includes a link to a variety of multilingual trauma resources that are available in 16 languages. The evidence-based resources provide guidance to parents, caregivers, educators, and communities struggling to support children, whether they are at risk of violence themselves or trying to process upsetting news of events at a distance. The information is applicable to all types of traumatic events, such as war and terrorism abroad; civil unrest, racism, and violence in our own homes, schools, and communities; or the devastation and aftermath of natural disasters.
These free resources, some of which are included below, help caring adults talk to children and adolescents about traumatic events and identify those who might benefit from more focused professional mental health assistance:
- Helping Children Cope After a Traumatic Event
- "Helping Children Cope With Frightening News" [Article]
- Helping Children Cope With Grief
- "How to Talk to Kids About School Shootings" [Article]
- “Talking to Kids About Racism and Violence” [Article]
Access these resources and more in the Child Mind Institute’s Family Resource Center.
