Improving Skills in Trauma Care

HONOLULU — Kids Hurt Too Hawaii has set its sights on training social workers across the state in helping grief-stricken children cope with the loss of a parent.

The two-hour training session starts Jan. 18, when social workers will be able to learn a full range of skills centered on grief and trauma, including helping them understand how children grieve as well as identifying the signs of suicide.

The training from Kids Hurt Too Hawaii comes amid a new state law that makes at least 15 hours of such training a condition for getting their license renewed.

“We look forward to the opportunity to help improve the ability for traumatized children to get the professional support they need to move beyond their pain,” said Cynthia White, executive director of Kids Hurt Too Hawaii.
