It’s hard to know how your child is impacted by a traumatic event in our nation or community unless you talk to them. But what’s the best way to start the conversation? Laura Politte, MD, a psychiatrist with WakeMed Mental Health & Well-Being helps parents navigate those difficult conversations with children of all ages. Join us for this FREE webinar for parents and caregivers. Affiliation with Apex-area schools is not required, webinar is open to all. Spanish translation will be provided.
