Title: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Coping with a Disaster or Traumatic Event
Url: https://emergency.cdc.gov/coping/index.asp
Publisher: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)
Description: This very helpful website addresses the toll disasters can have on mental health and provides healthy ways to cope. The site includes information on how parents can talk to their children, teachers can talk to their students, and how adults can talk to each other about a disaster. One good place to start is the link "Tips for Talking About Disasters", which is located under the heading titled "Information for Individuals and Families". The link "Video: Coping with a Traumatic Event" allows visitors to watch, listen, or watch with captions, a short podcast that explains how people react differently to traumatic events. The Virginia Tech shootings is the event used to explain how people's reactions can vary widely. A series of downloadable tip sheets, called "After the Storm", are available for adults, parents of children, and parents of youth, in Spanish, English and Vietnamese, each with their own link, found in the middle of the page. Under the heading titled "Information for Specific Groups", at the bottom of the page, are three links to information for "Responders", "Health Professionals", and "States and Planners".
