Abstract:

Natural disasters can be described as unpredictable, catastrophic events that have the potential to significantly impact the lives of individuals and families, as well as the overall functioning of com-munities. Globally, disasters are on the rise with wildfires increasing in numbers and intensity in part due to climate change. A mixed methods study was conducted in order to link the findings of current understandings of resiliency in a community context to the effects of wildfires on families and children. We specifi-cally examined the following research questions: (1) What are the social and emotional effects of wildfires on families and children-both short and long-term? (2) How is resiliency manifested within communities and what is the importance of resiliency for children and families after a wildfire? (3) Do children's concepts and understanding of resiliency differ from that of their parents? and if so, how? (4) What local and provincial supports and conditions contribute to the resiliency of children and families within communities that have experienced wildfires?
