Parent's Guide for Helping Children in the Wake of Disaster

National Center for Children Exposed to Violence

These guidelines were developed to help caregivers identify and address signs of adjustment difficulties in children who were not directly impacted by Hurricane Katrina. They are designed to mitigate the upsetting effects of explicit media coverage and suggest ways to talk to children about their fears and concerns after natural disasters.
