Please join the Region 2 National Preparedness Division in partnership with Americares for a webinar discussing strategies for children and young people to prepare for disasters.
Disasters can produce different types of emotional reactions in children and adolescents such as stress, anxiety, fear, insecurity, feelings of loss, frustration, anger, intolerance and trauma which could affect their self-esteem and normal development. This workshop offers strategies (such as the emergency backpack) so that children and young people can know how to prepare for a disaster and thus avoid anxiety at the time of the event. It also teaches them to recognize how they react to stress in disaster events and how to properly cope with these events.
