Many of us feel helpless in the face of tragedy. But there's hope for healing, as described in this blog post from the Somatic Experiencing (R) Trauma Institute. Especially for parents and child educators, I'll also recommend the book written by Peter Levine and Maggie Kline.
Somatic Experiencing is the approach Iuse in my private practice with people seeking greater ease in moving and connecting. SE has helped many of my clients in completing unresolved defensive responses, which no longer hold them in a freeze pattern.
Although we can't all physically travel to be with people who have suffered great loss, we can educate our communities, ourselves. Powerful stories about human resiliency build hope.
