Kaiser Permanente will host an additional two, no-cost Parenting After Tragedy classes to help parents understand and address the emotional and psychological needs of their keiki following the devastating Maui wildfires.
Earlier this month, Kaiser Permanente held three Parenting After Tragedy classes at the Royal Lahaina. After seeing the importance and need for resources that assist parents in helping their kids, these classes were added.
Participants will learn about typical emotional responses children may exhibit after a tragedy, responses based on age, what parents can do to support and guide their children, when to seek additional help, coping skills for children, and additional resources to further support healing journeys.
The classes are open to any parent in the Maui community, but children are not to attend.
