Disaster and Trauma Resource Center

A child who has been exposed to a disaster may have been an eye-witness to a disaster. He or she might have been hurt or had a family member who was hurt or killed. Children are also exposed to disasters through TV, media, word-of-mouth, or a mixture of these. The Disaster and Trauma Resource Center from the American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry contains specific family-friendly information on disaster and trauma. There is an "About" section, glossary of symptoms, frequently asked questions (FAQs), treatment resources, "Facts for Families" by diagnosis, video clips, clinical resources, recommended books, how to get help, links to support groups, and helpful apps.
