Posted Saturday, February 17, 2012 --- 9:00 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Department of Justice has developed a website for parents, guardians and others to find resources to help children affected by a violent death.

The DOJ's Office of Crime Victim Services lists organizations and child bereavement programs across Wisconsin.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says death through violence impacts every person that life has touched and the web resource will help with the unique needs of children.

Child bereavement programs typically use peer support as well as traditional counseling, art and play therapy, support groups and grief education.
