Join us as Dr. Michelle Wang, who worked with Second Response in the Philipines where she, Jonah Spear and Dr. Rony Berger worked with children, psychologists, and other care givers to prevent Post Traumatic Stress from becoming PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) through PLAYshops. PLAYshops are carefully crafted to offer children a safe space to release trauma, through movement, sound and play.

Second Response, founded by William Spear has offered healing relief to over 100, 000 children from Hurricane Sandy, to Newtown, to Fukishima, Indonesia and beyond. If you want to support their efforts help us prevent PTSD in children and families around the world please consider making your tax-deductible donation by clicking here.
