“There is a palpable spirit of caring and compassion spreading across our great country,” says June Mead in a special issue of the CYFERnet Parent/Family Editorial Board posted in November 2012. “Clearly the effects of the storm and coping with its aftermath unite us and demonstrate all that’s best about our great country’s sense of resilience and community spirit.”
Through UD Cooperative Extension’s affiliations with both the Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) and the Children, Youth and Families Education and Research Network (CYFERnet) we offer the following resources for helping children and families after Hurricane Sandy. Many of these resources also translate to coping and recovery after any natural disaster.
- Recover After a Disaster
- The Child Advocate: Helping Children Cope After a Disaster
- After the Storm: A Guide to Help Children Cope with the Psychological Effects of a Hurricane
- Helping Children After a Natural Disaster: Information for Parents and Teachers
The Special Issue also offers additional resources in Spanish.
