Teacher Guidelines for Helping Students after an Earthquake
National Child Traumatic Stress Network
Being in an earthquake is very frightening, and the days, weeks, and months following are very stressful. Most families recover over time, especially with the support of relatives, friends, and their community. But different families may have different experiences during and after the earthquake, including the experience of aftershocks which may continue for several months. Children may react differently to the earthquake and its aftermath depending on their age and prior experiences. Teachers play an important role in helping their students recover. Returning to school, even in a temporary setting, will promote the welfare of children and their families. This paper provides suggestions to help teachers in their work with their students and families.
