School Psychology International, v30 n4 p347-373 2009
During and following natural or man-made disasters, relief efforts have a long history of initially focusing on basic survival needs, then restoring community stability. Disaster mental health is a relatively new aspect of relief efforts, particularly in regard to children's needs. After reviewing objectives of major relief organizations and summarizing current research in light of practitioners' input, suggestions and resources are offered to strengthen cultural sensitivity in school-based disaster mental health services.
