• Program has been selected to help children and families cope with some of our nation's school tragedies and disasters.


Disasters, whether caused by a natural occurrence such as an earthquake or hurricane or by terrorism, have a profound effect on young children. Whether the children were directly involved, have friends or family who were victims or survivors, or are simply aware of the event through media and conversation, they may react by feeling helpless, isolated and bewildered. Educators are in a prime position to help children cope IF they know the warning signs and what to do.

The program clearly defines and illustrates the most typical symptoms children exhibit, then it shows activities and steps educators can take to help children cope and overcome the trauma of the event. The critical areas covered by the DVD are:

• Changes in children’s behavior and what they mean
• Successful ways to communicate
• How to create a supportive classroom environment
• Activities that will reinforce a sense of security and promote healing
• Health and nutrition

The program also includes a comprehensive 40-page Leader’s Guide that provides handouts of workshop activities for teachers. These activities help teachers explore the ways they can incorporate the information from the video into their classrooms. Also included in the guide are handouts covering: activities for children, information on weather and earthquakes, checklists, resource lists for teachers (print and online) as well as suggested literature for children.
