The book offers a theory- and research-based framework to address the numerous and varied needs of student, parents, educational staff, school administration, and the mental health professionals themselves. The sections include the following: A systematic review of the theory and findings relevant to mass disasters, their impact on children, and postdisaster stress processing and positive coping; A conceptual basis for schoolwide preventive interventions; and, A comprehensive multisystemic intervention plan involving school children, school personnel, and community agencies.
