Poughkeepsie, New York (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
Dressed in black fatigues and armed for combat, 20-year-old Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook elementary school on December 14, 2012 and opened fire on defenseless children and adults. The Connecticut School shooting claimed the lives of 20 children and 6 school officials. Even more calamitous, it is one of the nation’s worst mass shootings and second deadliest at a school in American history. As a country, American is devastated ranging from shock & disbelief to rage for the deceased assailant.
On December 21, 2012 from 7:00 – 7:40 AM EST, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli will be a guest on WPDH-FM 101.5 broadcasting from Poughkeepsie, New York to discuss his recently published Connecticut School Shooting Trauma Prevention Parenting Tips. Appearing on their morning show, “Wakin' Up With Coop”, Dr. Nuccitelli will educate listening parents & educators on tips to help children manage the horrific Connecticut Elementary School Shooting.

In addition to participating in the radio broadcast, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli has made available for download, at no cost, his “Connecticut School Shooting Trauma Prevention Parenting Tips” article. Reformatted from his 9/11 trauma prevention parenting tips list from 2001, Dr. Nuccitelli hopes his article helps parents reduce their child’s chances of suffering a trauma response.
Dr. Nuccitelli has stated, “The country is bantering over gun control, mental health, violent video games and America becoming a culture of violence. What is not being addressed is that 1000’s of children and adults are progressively isolating themselves from their loved ones and community, turning to Information and Communications Technology and left to their own devices and distorted perceptual thoughts. Given we are all at the beginning of the Information Age, it is paramount we address what it means to be connected to the abstract artificial universe called cyberspace.”
Dr. Nuccitelli’s parenting tips article applies to children from K-12 and should be amended accordingly based on their developmentally maturity. Most importantly, if the parent does determine that their child is experiencing a trauma response, they should not feel embarrassed and seek professional help.
