US: University of Missouri program provides tools for educators supporting children involved in natural disasters, crises

Source(s):  Newswise Inc.

Recent flooding in Missouri turned deadly and left many homes and businesses submerged in overflowing rivers, reports Newswise. Hundreds of people were evacuated as many of their homes were under water. Often, children are the most vulnerable in natural disasters and require assistance and support long after they are affected.

The Disaster and Community Crisis Center (DCC) at the University of Missouri is developing tools that can help children and youth affected during this disaster as well as future events. Recently, the program released animated, online disaster preparedness videos that will aid teachers and counselors who work with school-aged children about staying calm, problem-solving and coping in emergencies and natural disasters.
