Dealing With Far Away Trauma and Disaster
KUNM Call In Show Thu. 5/2 8a: Are you feeling sad, numb, or tired in the wake of recent violent events like the Boston Marathon bombing and the fertilizer plant explosion in Texas? Are you arguing more with loved ones? Do you feel mentally drained? You could be experiencing the long-distance impacts of these events.
What can you do to help yourself and your family cope with these feelings? How can you explain these things to children?
We'd like to hear from you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, post your comments online, or call in live during the show.
