Supporting children in early learning following a disaster or community trauma
Emerging Minds & Be You, Australia, May 2021
Following a natural disaster or community trauma, a child’s early learning service remains an important protective environment for supporting their recovery.
This can feel overwhelming for educators, as they are required to coordinate a variety of supports and services for children and families, in addition to their regular role within the learning community.
This course has been developed to provide educators with a foundational understanding of their role in the recovery process. It offers a practical framework and tips for supporting children in the immediate aftermath, short-term and long-term following a disaster or community trauma, as well as preparedness skills and knowledge you can use in your daily practice and programs.
This course is part of the Community Trauma Toolkit, originally co-produced by ANU and Emerging Minds.
