Mentally Preparing Children for disaster

Dr Susie Burke FAPS
Presented by Senior Psychologist, Australian Psychological Society

Here Dr Susie Burke FAPS explains how to include children in home disaster-planning and how being involved can help allay their fears and anxieties.

Australia regularly experiences natural disasters including floods and bushfires, and Australians are encouraged to develop a disaster plan to help them be prepared. Getting children involved is an effective way to help reduce their fear.
