Information:
The negative psychological effects of surviving a mass violence incident are second only to injury and death, and these types of incidents usually have a slower recovery trajectory.

Everyone who is exposed is in some way touched by what happened and may not understand their reactions. The good news is that most distress reactions are quite common and dissipate over time with good social supports and coping skills.

This webinar will provide psychoeducational information to assist victims and survivors in understanding their reactions and how to best cope with them. It will also help providers to understand how powerful this information is in decreasing anxiety and fear of the development of mental illness.
