About the Course:
Each year, natural disasters affect an average of 224 million individuals worldwide, and about 85.2 million in North America. Children under the age of 18 comprise nearly 25 percent of the United States’ population, or 74 million Americans (National Commission on Children and Disasters, 2010). In a representative sample of children ages 2 to 17 years, 13.9 percent had been exposed to a disaster in their lifetime, while 4.1 percent of the sample reported experiencing a disaster in the past year (Becker-Blease, Turner, & Finkelhor, 2010). As these statistics reflect, many children are exposed to disasters, and they constitute a population with particular risks and needs during and after disasters (Becker-Blease, Turner, & Finkelhor, 2010; National Commission on Children and Disasters, 2010).
This course is based on the article,Disaster Technical Assistance Center Supplemental Research Bulletin-Behavioral Health Conditions in Children and Youth Exposed to Natural Disasters created by SAMHSA in 2018.
