Identify the problem. Once you have a better idea of what is causing the crisis, you can work toward a solution. If a family member has recently died, it can cause stress for family members. If some family members do not take the time to grieve, they might lash out at others. In these cases, it is important to maintain an honest dialogue among family members, suggests KidsHealth, and answer any questions that arise. Keep in mind that family members will handle the information that you provide differently, so keep an eye on these reactions.
Call a family meeting. Staying in communication is critical, regardless of the type of crisis you’re dealing with. Let your family know that emotions are perfectly natural in this circumstance and take the time to listen to your family’s concerns.Dr. Gary Cameron-Xavier, M.D. WWC CEO & President
