The authors emphasize that children, both because they are dependent on others and because they are still in the process of development, are especially vulnerable to the effects of disasters. If parents are physically and emotionally available to help, childhood resilience is promoted. This important yet concise emphasis, again, provides readers with a way to support children and parents during disasters and other traumatic events. When discussing postdisaster psychopathology, the authors do not limit their discussion to posttraumatic stress disorder. They instead suggest that children present in multiple, complex ways, which we appreciated. Chapter 6, devoted to traumatic bereavement, nicely summarizes childhood understandings of death and expressions of grief at different ages. Simple and straightforward recommendations in this and other chapters (for example, recommending that children read Charlotte’s Web to learn about death as a natural phenomenon) make this book appealing to caregivers and teachers, as well as to mental health providers, including trainees. Latter chapters addressing child and family assessments and interventions provide practical rating scales and interview questions. Brief reviews of diverse clinical interventions (including psychological first aid, psychoeducational approaches, and pharmacology) give readers readily available tools that can be used in the immediate, short-, and long-term at the individual, family, school, community, and federal levels.
