Spring 2003

Help in coping with today's current events

In October 2001 we talked about coping with terrorism both for adults and children. Now in the Spring 2003, war in Iraq is over but we still have fears of terrorism. It is important to discuss these issues with children of all ages.

You may want more information to help cope with the situation. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has a National Mental Health Information Center with information about the effects of terrorism. http://www.mentalhealth.org/publications/allpubs/KEN-01-0095/default.asp

The New York University Child Study Center offers specific strategies to talk to children of different ages about the war in Iraq and terrorism in general. http://www.aboutourkids.org/parent_letter/war_E.pdf

The Mayo Clinic also provides specific information about helping kids through crisis situations. Additional resources are also listed at this site. http://www.mayoclinic.com/invoke.cfm?objectid=73B4D568-7F28-47FB-B753060654AB0CA3
