Natural disasters have become more frequent with climate change. Postdisaster, children and adolescents represent a particularly vulnerable group. Parents have a vital role in influencing how their children make sense of and respond to any potentially traumatic event. Supporting parents is particularly critical postdisaster, as parents will typically have been affected also, with implications for their parenting and the parent–child relationship. To date, only one postdisaster parenting intervention has been described and evaluated. A new, universal parenting intervention—Disaster Recovery Triple P (DRTP)—is introduced and efficacy data presented. Implementation issues to be considered in making a parenting intervention such as DRTP work in a postdisaster context are discussed.
