"[This book] guides children ages 6 to 12 and the adults who care for them through tough conversations about serious world events, from environmental threates to human tragedies. Care is taken to use the non-specific "bad thing" throughout, helping parents retain control over whicih events to talk about, and how much information to provide. Written by child psychologist Dr Dawn Huebner "Something Bad Happened" normalizes fear, sadness and worry about "bad things" while teaching coping skills to help children preserve feelings of safety, optimism and strength." - BOOK JACKET
