HELPING CHILDREN COPE WITH CRISIS & HELPING CAREGIVERS RECOVER: SELF-CARE. Teachers, childcare providers and volunteers working with children following a disaster can be overwhelmed by the emotional toll a disaster takes on the children they serve, their staff, as well as their own personal lives. While many of those who work with children on a daily basis are experts in supporting children through stressful times, it can be very challenging to support children after a community-wide emergency. This course was designed to help equip child-serving professionals with tools to take care of children and themselves. 2 DHHS-approved in-service hours.
