Summary

Born out of necessity and tested in the real world of natural and technological disasters as well as disasters of human design, this timely and critically important new volume is a comprehensive and clear examination of the effects of disasters on children and families from cognitive and behavioral, family systems, and ecological perspectives. Many special activities throughout the book provide a "touch of reality" that bridges the gap between cognitive and affective learning.
