This 10-page fact sheet describes the effects that media coverage may have on Children and Youth DBHIS both those directly affected by the disaster and also those who live far from the disaster site but see coverage in the news of the disaster. It identifies ways in which school personnel can support students in coping with media coverage and their emotions about the disaster. [Authors: Houston, J. B., Rosenholtz, C. E., and Weisbrod, J.
