Responding to Children in Disasters

June 28, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Children’s Disaster Services trains and certifies volunteers for specialized childcare after disasters, working cooperatively with American Red Cross, to provide a safe environment and a comforting presence for children impacted by trauma since 1980. Child Life Disaster Relief (CLDR) is a partner of CDS, focusing on the psychosocial and emotional needs of children impacted by disaster.

In this webinar, we will be providing a brief overview of best childcare protocols in an interactive online format to prepare disaster workers to rise up and meet the challenge to help children affected by disaster until more specialized child care teams can arrive. Additional educational materials and resources will be provided on helping children after disasters to increase positive coping and build resilience.
