Las reacciones de los niños y jóvenes a un tiroteo están fuertemente influenciadas por cómo responden al evento los padres, familiares, maestros y otros cuidadores. A menudo los niños y jóvenes acuden a estos adultos para obtener información, consuelo y ayuda. Existen muchas reacciones que son comunes después de un evento de violencia masiva. Generalmente estas disminuyen con el tiempo, pero saber acerca de estas reacciones puede ayudarle a brindar apoyo, tanto a usted mismo como a sus hijos.
A series of free, evidence-based video and print resources that caregivers and educators can use to teach their kids critical mental health and coping skills. The project was born of an innovative partnership between the state of California and the Child Mind Institute. It includes introductory videos for caregivers and educators, and videos to teach kids five clinically proven mental health skills:
Students will learn that better understanding and recognizing their emotions can be an important first step toward healthy coping and deeper relationships.
Students will learn specific relaxation skills, such as paced breathing, that they can use when experiencing intense or uncomfortable emotions.
Students will learn about connections between their thoughts, feelings and behaviors and how they can change thinking patterns to make them more helpful.
Managing Intense Emotions:
Students will learn to recognize and manage intense emotions without giving in to the urge to act in impulsive ways that can make problems bigger.
Students will learn how paying attention to the present moment can increase self-awareness, improve decision-making and make it easier to deal with uncomfortable emotions.
Each video comes with a brief companion resource that summarizes key ideas and includes an activity that can be practiced in school or at home
