Children’s Mental Health in the Pandemic
Though physically resilient to COVID-9, children are psychologically vulnerable to stressors including adult illnesses and deaths of loved ones. Adult anxiety is widespread, and influences children’s development. Lack of school activity is now widespread. A guided activity workbook has been prepared to help give children psychological H.A.N.D.S. — Honesty, Activity, Networking, and Developmentally Specific resources. Many educational features are included, to encourage children’s scientific thinking. The authors have decades of experience and evidence-based findings in disaster response. Columbia University and Baylor Departments of Psychiatry have studied and found children greatly helped by this method.

For children and families affected by an epidemic such as the COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus)

“My Pandemic Story” is an evidence-based guided activity workbook designed to support children’s mental and emotional health during the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Authored by renowned child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Dr. Gilbert Kliman and The Children’s Psychological Health Center, the workbook provides guidance and tools for parents, teachers and caregivers, mental health clinicians of children of all ages coping with the stress and psychological trauma from the pandemic.

Using a Guided Activity Workbook the kindergarten child is eager to draw. Her school is closed and she is at home with her mother. She expresses her fears and does not want to stop doing the workbook tasks. The child grasps that the Coronavirus can enter a person’s body. She colors the virus “pitch black….because it can make a person die.” She loves to ice skate. She draws virus particles threatening an ice skater. The virus enters the body of the skater and makes the skater sick. By expressing herself with a similar workbook this child became resilient following the California Wildfires, and welcomed the opportunity to work on this new crisis.
