Kaiser Permanente offering classes for parents helping keiki cope with tragedy
Kaiser Permanente will host three, 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.
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.
