Talking to Our Kids about Their Story

Michele Schneidler

Our kids come to us with histories filled with trauma and loss.  Experts say secrecy leads to shame and a person finds healing when they can clearly articulate their story.  But how do we initiate conversations with our kids, and at what age?  In this workshop, caregivers learn developmentally appropriate ways to talk about traumatic experiences at various ages and stages of a child’s life.
