How To Communicate With Your Children About Tragedies Like 9/11

As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 rapidly approaches, it is important to remember how to communicate with your children about traumatic events they are exposed to and will eventually learn about. Jacob Ham, Ph.D., an expert in the treatment of child traumatic stress, directs the program for Healing Emotions and Achieving Resilience to Traumatic Stress at Beth Israel Medical Center and St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center (BI-SLR HEARTS) in NYC. Dr. Ham provides support services to children who have been exposed to all different types of trauma. He created a video with information on how to talk to your kids about the 9/11 anniversary for the American Mental Health Association, which can be helpful in all traumatic situations.
