Kenny Slaught supports Hospice of Santa Barbara efforts to provide wide range of services, not only for those facing terminal and chronic illness, but also for their families. Many of the organization’s initiatives focus on the needs of children as they process the impending or recent passing of a family member. Around 20 percent of children suffer the death of a loved one prior to turning 18, and one in 20 children sees the loss of one or both parents before they reach adulthood. Hospice of Santa Barbara seeks to provide those in these situations with free mentorship through numerous programs. This support helps children cope with their grief to avoid or alleviate depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Youth who experience a close loss can feel alone and overwhelmed, with many acting out as teenagers and engaging in risky behaviors, such as substance abuse or self-mutilation. The I Have a Friend program shows them that they can overcome their grief and pain in a better way, and go on to lead fulfilling, happy lives, just as the adult volunteers have. Kenny Slaught explains that these volunteers teach them the importance of open communication while working to help program participants become more resilient.

When children experience the loss of a parent, they may feel that their lives will never be the same. They often feel loss and abandonment. As pointed out by Kenny Slaught, “The I Have a Friend mentor program allows these young people to share their feelings with someone who has experienced something very similar.” The individual will have a companion for as long as he or she needs, and can explore some of the most sensitive subjects in an open and supportive environment with the mentor. In turn, the mentor offers support and practical guidance on the hurdles that will come.

Multiple Hospice of Santa Barbara counsellors are effectively integrating EMDR into treatment plans after becoming certified in the cutting-edge therapy. As a result, many clients using this therapy service have reported greater feelings of ease and comfort than they experienced with talk therapy alone. EMDR does not remove the need for talk therapy, but is built to be an important complement for clients with particularly difficult grief or trauma. Kenny Slaught, via his blog, encourages all interested individuals to “learn more about EMDR and other therapies offered through the hospice online at HospiceOfSantaBarbara.org or by calling the organization directly at (805) 563-8820.”

Kenny Slaught, a property investment expert and dedicated philanthropist, has recently commented on his blog at KennySlaught.com about the new state-of-the-art therapy available for veterans at Hospice of Santa Barbara. Known as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), the modality has been used effectively to treat veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by using eye movements in a unique way to process trauma and reframe raw, vivid imagery associated with it in the hippocampus. This results in the brain “re-filing” the painful memory, giving individuals the opportunity to deal with the trauma in a more objective manner.
