In Response…

We are deeply saddened with the news of the devastating and horrific mass-shooting that took place in Orlando, Florida. As an association dedicated to helping children and families around the globe, our thoughts and prayers are with the children, community, and families whose lives have been so terribly impacted by this senseless tragedy.

This act reflects how much we still must learn in our science and our caring for each other, adults as well as children, about violence and how to prevent needless deaths and loss.

If you want more information on how to help families and children cope with loss, trauma and violence please refer to the following:
