These resources provide information and guidance for educators on how to help themselves and students recover from the impact of the bushfires.
The information is evidence-informed, recently reviewed and is sourced primarily from Emerging Minds (National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health) and headspace. The educator’s pack includes three key fact sheets:
- Helping students recover after trauma: classroom activities
- Trauma responses in children aged 5-12 years
- How educators can help in the classroom
A comprehensive Emerging Minds Educator’s Handbook is available for download: Supporting wellbeing and resilience in children before, during and after a natural disaster.
