Raising kids in times of trauma: A discussion about self care and support for children

>> Add this event to your Google Calendar

Join us on Friday 17th February at 2pm EST and 11am PST to talk about trauma and its impact on children and how, as adults, we can best support them. We will be joined by John Kinsel and Kathy Fry-Miller who will lead this discussion on how we can normalize anxieties in ourselves and children surrounding traumas such as gun violence and natural disasters.

We will be discussing strategies, coping mechanisms and self-care techniques to help us manage emotions evoked by trauma. There will be space for questions and open discussion led by John and Kathy. 

John Kinsel is a retired child therapist, following a 40 year career focusing on young children with special needs and exposure to trauma and their families. He is also a seasoned trainer for Children's Disaster Services, a Church of the Brethren program that responds to children immediately following a disaster in their community, both natural or person-made. He was blessed to be with Kathy in Nigeria assisting with Trauma Healing.

Kathy Fry-Miller is an author, early childhood consultant, and volunteer. She co-wrote Maria’s Kit of Comfort, a picture book of hope and healing after disaster. She was the associate director of Children’s Disaster Services of the Church of the Brethren, which included work in Nigeria with women educators who had experienced violence. Kathy previously worked as an education specialist with Child Care Resource and Referral, an early childhood director, and a classroom teacher. She currently serves on the board of Education for Conflict Resolution in North Manchester, Indiana.

The event is intended for adults. It is scheduled for one hour however it may be extended to fit the needs of the group. We look forward to seeing you there!
