Hundreds of people were affected by the recent floods. A large number of these are children who may have suffered major disruption, losses, or lived through frightening experiences. Many other children have been affected indirectly, through hearing about the floods or knowing someone who has lost their home. These can all be challenging experiences for children.
Psychologists at the Australian Psychological Society provide some general advice to help people to look after children who have been affect by the floods.
