The recent tragedies in Pittsburgh and other parts of our country have left our community heartbroken. Many of us have been impacted, either directly or indirectly, by these incomprehensible shootings. During this difficult time, as we reflect on our feelings in the days and weeks to come, Jewish Family Service will have professional support available to children, adults, and families. Please allow us to be of assistance as you begin the process of healing.
Our number one priority is to help individuals, families and the community process understandable reactions in order to be able to continue their daily lives with less anxiety and stress:
- JFS shares resources with parents --- such as strategies, questions for interactive discussions and language ---who want to consider how to discuss the tragedy with their children.
- JFS is available to provide one on one counseling for individuals experiencing significantly heightened fear or stress prompted by news of a traumatic event.
- JFS is available to community institutions for clinical consultation with management, staff, students or congregants.
- JFS has several support groups already established, for both adolescents and adults, into which an individual may enter for a period of time to discuss their concerns with peer support.
Please allow us to be of assistance to begin the process of healing. Counseling Department Contact: Ada Cheung, PhD, LCSW-S email@example.com,
