 Crisis counseling helps those impacted by a disaster deal with the normal stress brought on by an abnormal situation. Common reactions to a disaster may include:

– nightmares
– difficulty sleeping
– feelings of being overwhelmed
– hopelessness
– increased anger or aggression
– domestic violence
– frustration
– feelings of powerlessness

These feelings can be exhibited by people of all ages. Children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to post-disaster stress.
