Kenny Slaught Discusses Benefits Of Hospice Youth Support Initiatives

Kenny Slaught endorses Hospice of Santa Barbara for building an active presence at local school campuses of all levels, from elementary school to college. Volunteers visit campuses and organize weekly support groups for students experiencing traumatic or complex scenarios and requiring a safe space in which to discuss their thoughts and feelings. On-campus groups aim to create open atmospheres that encourage self-reflection and boost critical coping skills. Effective coping skills help adolescents avoid drugs, alcohol, and other forms of self-medication. In addition to direct work with students, the hospice volunteers offer training to faculty and staff members about how to communicate with students who are dealing with trauma and how to handle their questions about death, most notably violent deaths and suicide. Each of the 65 schools in the Hospice of Santa Barbara network can call on the organization around the clock to respond to a traumatic situation quickly and successfully.

The mentee can explore some of the most sensitive topics in an open and supportive environment with their mentor, who in turn gives support and practical guidance on the hurdles that lie ahead.

Slaught Discusses EMDR’s Benefits For PTSD Sufferers

“The professionals at Hospice of Santa Barbara strive to provide the highest level of service to clients by offering effective, cutting-edge therapies,” Kenny Slaught notes, praising the organization. “Dealing with grief and loss is extremely difficult, but a new therapy has emerged to help individuals through difficult times.” People dealing with PTSD undergo overwhelming and painful emotions whenever they remember a past trauma, similar to those dealing with loss and grief. EMDR allows these negative emotions to be mitigated. EMDR involves the practice of dual stimulation—both bilateral eye movements and tones or taps, during which clients recall past traumas in a safe environment while focusing on the external stimulus. Practitioners then assist clients in finding insight about the difficult emotions and make more positive associations with current triggers.
