Published May 18, 2022

Spectrum Local News spoke to Sourav Sengupta, MD, MPH, assistant professor of psychiatry and pediatrics at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at UB, about parents talking to their children about the mass shooting in Buffalo. "We don't want to be using a lot of adult words and concepts,” he said. “We really want to try to get down to their level and communicate in a way that they're going to understand. It usually means sometimes not giving a lot of details.”
