Responding to Trauma and Tragedy
In the face of the tornadoes in Oklahoma, and other recent tragedies here and around the world, we're often left to wonder how to handle such situations emotionally. When events like this occur, we are often connected with others' tragedy and heartbreak; even when we are not directly affected, we experience emotional effects. As you think about these tragedies and traumas, give yourself permission to feel whatever you feel emotionally. Similarly, give yourself permission to take care of your own emotional needs. You can find more information and tips at #loveislouder, including tips on how to care for yourself and friends. If you have specific questions or need to talk with a counselor, please call or email our office.
