NCTSN Two Part Series on Child and Adolescent Traumatic Stress Reactions and Evidence Based Treatments for COVID-19 Related Deaths

 

A free series of training on child/adolescent traumatic grief in response to experience of COVID-19 related deaths are now available to register.

As the US Surgeon General VADM Murthy recently noted, there have been at least 140,000 children in the US who lost a parent or caregiver-- BEFORE the winter surge began. Another subset have lost both parents/caregivers and yet other friends and other family members(grandparents, etc.).

These trainings from the SAMHSA/NCTSN Learning Center have free CEUs (see instructions below) and are presented by some of the world's leaders in treating traumatic grief in children and adolescents. Please share this opportunity with your colleagues.

Part 1: Child and Adolescent Traumatic Stress Reactions to COVID-19-Related Deaths

To date the COVID-19 pandemic has caused more than 800,000 deaths in the United States, with more than 140,000 children losing a parent or primary caregiver to COVID-19-related deaths. Due to the nature of these deaths, many children may develop traumatic stress reactions that contribute to problematic grief responses. This webinar will describe aspects of COVID-19-related deaths that can contribute to children’s traumatic stress reactions, with an emphasis on developmental considerations and behavioral health disparities.



Part 2: Applying Evidence-Based Treatments for Child Traumatic Stress Reactions to COVID-19-Related Deaths

To date, more than 800,000 individuals in the US have died from COVID-19 and more than 140,000 children and teens have lost parents or primary caregivers to COVID-19-related deaths. Many of these youth are at heightened risk for developing traumatic stress reactions to these deaths. This webinar describes trauma-focused evidence-based treatments (EBT) for children and teens who develop traumatic stress reactions, with specific applications to familial deaths during COVID-19 for 1) young children; 2) American Indian and Alaskan Native families; 3) Black and Latino/Latina adolescents with adjunct peer support components; and 4) diverse youth provided via telehealth.
