Resources for coping with traumatic events in the news

It is typical for people to experience a variety of emotions following such a traumatic event. These feelings can include shock, sorrow, numbness, fear, anger, disillusionment, grief and others. You may find that you have trouble sleeping, concentrating, eating or remembering even simple tasks. This is common and should pass after a while. Over time, the caring support of family and friends can help to lessen the emotional impact and ultimately make the changes brought about by the tragedy more manageable. You may feel that the world is a more dangerous place today than you did yesterday. It will take some time to recover your sense of equilibrium. APA offers some tips on how to strengthen your resilience after a shooting and indirect exposure to terror. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network also offers resources for parents and educators on talking to kids about news.
