What Happened to Our World: Helping Children Cope with Natural Disaster and Catastrophe

This resource, updated in 2011 for the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, was referred to us by Andrea Burniske (IN) during the discussion of International Aid for Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). Andrea's comment on sharing this with the International Collaboration workgroup: "Mercy Corps has developed many of these tools as part of their program, Comfort for Kids (Katrina, Mitch, Gaza, Peru, Haiti, Japan and many other places). I worked with Mercy Corps in responding to the Peru Earthquake and we adapted some of the tools for child psychosocial help with schools there."

                      Download the PDF from Mercy Corps.

The resource was developed originally for disasters in the United States. Andrea provides this comparison:  "The original approaches (9/11 and Katrina) were a bit different from what came later, overseas. The US approaches are more oriented to build the capacity of social workers, educators, and others who worked with the kids. The overseas approach was similar, although in situations where there often was less of a system in place (although this wasn’t the case in Japan), and so the approach was oriented towards NGO partners."
