Parkland Strong: Mending the Tapestry

Kelly, a marriage and family therapist, and resident of Parkland, FL, lives less than a mile from Stoneman Douglas High School where the Parkland shooting took place, and has therefore been involved in the aftermath of the Parkland tragedy both personally and professionally. This presentation will give a first-person account of her experiences, as well as cover what to expect during a crisis from a mental health perspective and the “do’s and don’ts” of what to say to someone who is going through a traumatic event. Finally, she will cover the latest research on post-traumatic growth and focus on how to mend the tapestry.
