Reminder: Talking to Kids About Tragedy in the Primary Care Setting

Recently, Network Matters ran an article featuring advice from mental health experts on talking to children who are struggling with fear or anxiety in the wake of traumatic events that they witnessed firsthand or through news coverage. This information may serve useful as patients, old and young alike, struggle to move past the recent Boston Marathon bombings.

The article, Talking to Kids About Tragedy in the Primary Care Setting, offers clinicians advice on recognizing symptoms of trauma in children (with common symptoms broken down by age) and provides helpful tips and talking points for clinicians and parents.

If, after assessing the patient or family, you find that they need outside assistance in dealing with a traumatic event, United Behavioral Health is available to provide consultative assistance (800-292-2922) or to refer the patient for behavioral health services and facilitate coordination of care (888-777-4742).
