Lauren Schneider is the Clinical Director of Child & Adolescent Programs of OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center.
Lauren has provided training for mental health clinicians, educators, clergy, health care providers and graduate students throughout the community since 2000.
She specializes in talking to children after sudden deaths due to homicide, suicide, overdose or acts of terrorism. Children need to be told the truth in age appropriate language because they always find out the truth and they will feel anger, resentment or lack of trust towards those who weren't honest with them if they aren't told the truth.
This year is the 25th anniversary of Our House Grief Support Center.
Our House believes it's important to helping children cope when tragedy impacts our community.
You should determine if your child has acquired knowledge about the traumatic event by asking about it.
Provide a safe environment for your children to express their concerns and feelings.
For more information, you can check out their website here.
Throughout the year, they have different events like Run for Hope and Camp Erin.
