Helping kids cope with trauma

Wednesday, February 14, 2018
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Traumatic experiences and the stress they cause can disrupt a child’s brain development and increase the risk of both short-term and long-term physical, social and emotional issues. But kids are remarkably resilient, and the effects of trauma can be blunted if they receive comfort and support. This panel poses the question: As media producers, what responsibility do we have to address and create resources to mitigate the impact of traumatic experiences on young children?
