Healing Young Hearts

With the recent events at Robb Elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, our children are going to have many hard questions in their attempts to make sense of what occurred.  According to Dr. Judith Herman, “Traumatic events overwhelm the ordinary systems of care that give people a sense of control, connection, and meaning”.  We cannot begin to fathom the reason behind these traumatic events, but we can start by helping children restore and enhance their sense of control, connection, and meaning by trying to give them opportunities to persevere and thrive. 

We can help children through this trauma by helping them build on their resilience.  It is important to note that trauma can undermine resilience because it challenges the very things that make us strong, but it is not impossible, it just takes time and patience. 

We here at H&H Child Care Training share our heartfelt condolences to those we tragically lost too soon, and we believe that all children deserve a positive learning environment with adults who care for them.  We know the important role teachers play in a child’s life and how they can help children build their resilience, which is why we have created classes on supporting children such as Children’s Keepers: Building Childhood Resilience.    

We also have developed a class to help children address and cope with grief in Healing Young Hearts: Stress and Grief
