Packard Children’s Hospital psychologist to discuss helping children coping with trauma

As the ongoing investigation into the tragic death of California high-school student Audrie Pott has become national news, many parents are wondering how to help their children and teens cope in equally traumatic situations. In an effort to answer parents' questions, Rebecca Rialon Berry, PhD, a child psychologist from Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, will participate in a San Jose Mercury News live chat.

The chat begins today at 5:30 pm Pacific time and will cover topics ranging from how to recognize a child has experienced a traumatic event to how to help manage students' social networking presence.
