Emotional Impact of Disaster on Children and Their Families

This PowerPoint offers clear insights into how children and families may react to disasters, as well as a conceptual framework for how to help and specific interventions to offer, such as psychological first aid. While geared to pediatricians, it is very relevant to Out-of-School Time (OST) leaders and caregivers trying to help in the current pandemic. Also available in Spanish. This resource supports the COVID-19 response.
