Boston Globe Parenting Unfiltered columnist Kara Baskin has helped us assemble a live panel version of two of her important articles all parents should read: How to talk to kids about gun violence and Will our kids ever be safe.

Join us to hear Drs. Patricia Crain de Galarce, Neena McConnico, and Anthony Rao—specialists in child behavior, trauma, and exposure to violence—discuss how to answer children’s questions about gun violence and manage our own fears as we try to keep them safe.

Speaker: Kara Baskin, moderator, with Dr. Neena McConnico, Dr. Patricia Crain de Galarce, and Dr. Anthony Rao


Dr. Neena McConnico is director of Boston Medical Center’s Child Witness to Violence Project.

Dr. Patricia Crain de Galarce is director of Lesley University’s Center for Inclusive and Special Education, overseeing the Lesley Institute for Trauma Sensitivity.
