Parenting a child who has experienced trauma


As our community continues to heal and work through the heart-wrenching fires and Borderline shooting this past November, know that our processing of traumatic events takes time. Over the coming weeks, it's important to have a clear understanding of what the healing process might look like for your child. We highly recommend the Parenting a Child Who Has Experienced Trauma factsheet that was compiled by the Child Welfare Information Gateway. Other supportive resources can be accessed through the website. Check out the Counseling Corner episode from the Community 360 Podcast below as a guide for self-care over the coming weeks.

As both you and your children continue the healing process, please reach out to our staff with anything we can do to support you.
