Helping Children after a Disaster

author: American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
description: Resource for teachers:

"A catastrophe such as an earthquake, hurricane, tornado, fire, flood, or violent acts is frightening to children and adults alike. It is important to acknowledge the frightening parts of the disaster when talking with a child about it. Falsely minimizing the danger will not end a child's concerns. Several factors affect a child's response to a disaster."
