Guiding Children Through the Trauma of War
Interview with Beth Tyson, MA

In a world often marred by conflict and violence, it’s crucial to provide children with the necessary support and guidance to help them navigate the traumatic experiences of war and violence. In this enlightening video, we explore practical strategies and expert advice on how to assist children in coping with these distressing situations. It feels impossible to provide any meaningful guidance on this topic when I’ve never experienced war myself, however, I can speak to how trauma generally impacts all children, and that will likely be helpful to those living in war-torn countries.

Beth Tyson, owner of Beth Tyson Trauma Consulting, is an experienced speaker and educator on childhood trauma. In this video, she is interviewed by Helen Kyianovska, CEO of YellowToad, an educational software engineering agency based in Ukraine.

In this video, you will learn:

Learn trauma-informed techniques to create a safe and nurturing environment for children, enabling them to heal and build resilience. From open communication to art therapy and stress-relief activities, discover a range of methods to help children better process their emotions and experiences of war.

We delve into the importance of understanding trauma symptoms, recognizing signs of distress, and offering age-appropriate explanations. We aim to empower parents, caregivers, and educators to become a source of strength and support for the children in their lives.

While war is traumatic for most children, there is hope when children are surrounded by adults who build trust, provide safety, and meet their needs for unconditional love. We know from the study of Positive Childhood Experiences that safety, social connection, and belonging are the paths to healing from trauma.

Join us in this vital conversation as we discuss ways to provide hope and healing to young minds affected by war and violence. Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of these children and contribute to a brighter, more peaceful future.
