Have you thought about how you would lead your school through a disaster? Disasters are becoming more frequent, so as educators we often have to consider what we would do if a disaster impacted our school community. Disaster Talks speaks with principals, teachers, students, and school mental health and education department leaders to hear what they have learnt from their experiences of disaster and what they wished they knew before the disaster hit. This series shares the learning from people who’ve experienced bushfires and floods first-hand and experts who provide advice about the best way to support your school community through these challenging experiences. Disaster Talks offers practical tips and evidence-based advice for school leaders, teachers and families. Produced by the Australian Child and Adolescent Trauma, Loss & Grief Network at the Australian National University in collaboration with UNICEF Australia. Executive Producer and Editor is Liz Keen.
