Parents and caregivers

Parents and caregivers know their children better than anyone and are in a position to provide support before, during and after a disaster. However, parents may need help identifying trauma reactions in themselves and their children, and finding a balance between supporting children and caring for themselves. 

The resources listed below are designed for parents and caregivers to use themselves, or for practitioners to use with families living and working in areas affected by natural disaster or community trauma.
