Spurred to create a response to the impact of trauma on children and families from post-Superstorm Sandy, The New Jersey Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics gathered training and other resource material in order to support pediatricians and other health care providers to deliver support to these families. We benefit from their work through their Pediatric Partnership Initiative – Special Edition II
Tools, resources, CME activities and stories cover five practical areas - Parental Resilience, Social Connections, Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development, Concrete Support in Times of Need and Social and Emotional Competence. Articles range from "When Things Aren't Perfect - Caring for Yourself and Your Children" to “Care-Mapping: A How-To Guide for Professionals” and from "The Philadelphia ACE Study”; to “Five Protective Factors.” There is the Community Resilience Cookbook's story of Camden’s struggle for an ACE-informed environment – featuring physician Jeff Brenner, M.D. and also the essential guide: “Basic Coding for Mental Health Services in a Pediatric Office” while “What am I Feeling?
