Managing Your Emotions after a Disaster or Traumatic Event

News of hurricanes, shootings and other events fill our news feeds.

Many of us feel a little discombobulated and ‘off.’

In late August, many people were trying to figure out how to respond to our neighbors in need in Texas and Louisiana following Hurricane Harvey, only to be hit with the news that another hurricane… Irma had formed and was heading towards Florida. We prepared, braced for Irma, spent time without power and cleaning up. Hurricane Maria followed in September, devastating many Caribbean islands, including Puerto Rico. This week brought the tragedy of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Dr. Erica Clark and the Rev. Sally Campbell Evans walk through some of the emotions you may be feeling.

If you feel the need to speak with a pastor, please call your church office.  If you need to speak with a counselor, please call 211 for help.
