Help children cope with stressful times...
When first responders leave after the initial Emergency Phase of a disaster, who's there to help children overcome the Post Traumatic Stress that emerges in the weeks that follow?
Second Response is an initiative of the Fortunate Blessings Foundation. It trains volunteers to address the immediate and long-term emotional and psychological health of children by conducting non-verbal, carefully designed "PLAYshops" that significantly reduce the incidences of PTSD and help to build resilient communities.
Since this is mostly an experiential program, wear comfortable shoes and clothes to be prepared to move.
Program conducted by William and Jonah Spear.
