Coping with Tragedy

Chai Lifeline has on its website valuable information for coping and helping our children cope with the recent tragedy in Boro Park.

See here for a list of resources, videos, audio conferences, crisis intervention line, plus a list of upcoming symposia (two are scheduled for tonight, one in Fallsburg, and one in Far Rockaway).

See here for telephone dial-in and audio downloads.

I found the following helpful (I have not yet listened to the other speakers listed):

Helping Yourself and Your Child Cope With Tragedy
Dr. Norman Blumenthal Listen
Director of Chai Lifeline’s Project CHAI (Chizuk, Healing and Intervention)

(here is a pdf summarizing many of the points mentioned by Dr. Blumenthal)

Children’s Safety for the Future
Dr. David Pelcovitz Listen
Straus Professor of Psychology & Education, Azrieli Graduate School, Yeshiva University

The Leiby Kletzky Memorial Fund. Coping With Grief by Doing Good.
