The literature-based activities in After the Crisis help children who have been through a trauma. With activities and exercises that can be used in conjunction with 50 children's books, teachers can use the discussion starters, writing activities, and art activities in After the Crisis to promote children's ability to cope and heal. After the Crisis addresses numerous crises that can affect a child: - Earthquakes - Epidemics and mass casualty incidents - Floods - Hurricanes - Tornadoes and major storms - Shelter experiences - Volcano eruptions - Death of a loved one After the Crisis is the companion book to Preparing for Disaster: What Every Early Childhood Director Needs to Know.
