Available Now: Supplemental Research Bulletin—Children and Disasters
SAMHSA's Disaster Technical Assistance Center (DTAC) is pleased to introduce the DTAC Supplemental Research Bulletin, which will be published biannually.
This first Supplemental Research Bulletin examines the emotional impact that natural and human-caused disasters have on children and youth, one of the populations most at risk for negative mental health outcomes after a disaster.
Topics include the following:
- Factors influencing children's response to a disaster
- Patterns of resilience and recovery
- Social and environmental effects
- Implications for practice, policy, and planning.
About the Supplemental Research Bulletin
The purpose of the Supplemental Research Bulletin is to provide disaster behavioral health practitioners, planners, and other responders a summary of several recently published research articles and literature reviews. Each Supplemental Research Bulletin will highlight a number of chosen articles related to a specific topic of current interest to the field.
We would appreciate your feedback on this publication, as well as suggestions for future topics. Please send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
