ANNOUNCEMENT FOR POSITION
Children and youth can face emotional strains after a traumatic event such as a car crash or violence.1 Disasters also may leave them with long-lasting harmful effects.2 When children experience a trauma, watch it on TV, or overhear others discussing it, they can feel scared, confused, or anxious. Young people react to trauma differently than adults. Some may react right away; others may show signs that they are having a difficult time much later. As such, adults do not always know when a child needs help coping. This tip sheet will help parents, caregivers, and teachers learn some common reactions, respond in a helpful way, and know when to seek support.
Tips for Talking with Children & Youth After a Disaster or Traumatic event
Child Care Providers can receive valuable support for the work you do with children. The Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) is your ticket to having professional coaches come to your environment, high quality trainings, incentives and the chance to network with other providers in the field.
