Coping with Tragedy
West Bergen would like to offer some excellent resources materials, courtesy of the Traumatic Loss Coalition, for our readers and their family and friends. This information will be especially helpful to families, school staff and anyone helping children cope with their feelings and questions about tragic events and other traumas. As one of the trusted adults in children’s lives, you are one of their most influential “helpers.” Please contact us if West Bergen can be of assistance.
