The families of the Long Beach community have been affected by Hurricane
Sandy in many different ways. Everyone is working hard to recover from
their own experiences and move forward. During this difficult time you,
as well as your children, may be struggling to cope with the feelings
you may be having. Some reactions are to be expected.
There are a number of resources available to help guide you in helping
your children through this. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network
has prepared “Parent Guidelines for Helping Children After a Hurricane
”. To view a copy of this document click here.
If you continue to have concerns or questions with regard to reactions
you are seeing from your children, or you yourself need support, please
do not hesitate to call the building social workers, psychologists, or
me personally at 897-2202.
We are here to assist you in any way we can.
