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 behavioural, 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.
