Crash programs to resolve problems in classrooms are often after the fact and sometimes too late. Because nurturing the needs of others can be a tough job, CHAT offers a six-hour training workshop for adults. This core curriculum offers information to help children cope with a variety of traumatic events as well as guidelines to start a CHAT support program in your community.
CHAT is an excellent resource for school assembly or small classroom programs. Students will receive information to help them cope with many issues; including, substance abuse and suicide prevention, building self-esteem, conflict resolution, preparing for adulthood (high school level), and dealing with the pain of grief.
Following a school crisis, CHAT can provide immediate on-site resources to assist school personnel in helping children deal with traumatic events, such as, the death of a classmate or teacher.
Audience: Adolescents and teenagers as well as parents, educators, counselors, school resource officers or anyone interested in helping a child cope with grief
