Children’s meaning-making in relation to a disaster or traumatic event

Emerging Minds, Australia, 2019

This video, featuring child psychotherapist Ruth Wraith, discusses how each child will have a different experience of and response to a disaster. Their understanding of an event will be affected by their developmental stage, their strengths, and any pre-existing vulnerabilities. It is important to consider their point of view when supporting children to cope with disaster.
