Talking With Children About The Manchester Attack

Download Audio

The attack Monday night at Manchester Arena in the United Kingdom has claimed more than 20 lives. What sets it apart from other terrorist bombings is that a disproportionate number of young people were among those injured or killed. Singer Ariana Grande, who'd just performed, is a favorite among kids.

Dr. Gene Beresin, executive director of the Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds at MGH, joined WBUR's All Things Considered to discuss how to talk to children about the attack.

This segment aired on May 23, 2017.
