CCTC Workshop: “The Talk”: Addressing Community Violence and Trauma with Your Children

Featuring Leah Brogan, PhD and Jacqueline Kendrick, MSW, LCSW; Violence Intervention Program, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

This workshop will provide parents/caregivers with foundational knowledge regarding trauma and traumatic reactions (i.e., posttraumatic stress). Specifically, CHOP will cover how trauma may present in children and adolescents following exposure to and/or involvement in community violence and/or other adverse events.

CHOP will provide attendees with strategies for effectively responding to children and adolescents following community violence and/or trauma exposure and how to create open, safe, and supportive environments in the wake of violence and/or trauma.

Finally, CHOP will provide attendees with resources for families following community
violence exposure (e.g., community-based mental health and violence mediation services) as
well as guidance on how best to access those resources.
