A look at psychological first aid has researchers from KU talking to Joplin kids and their parents.
It's called Project Share.
Researchers are talking with students who've lost a school and families who've lost homes as they try to learn how Joplin residents coped in the wake of the tornado.
They'll interview kids and their mothers at such places as the Human Resource Center at the FEMA home park.
In return researchers say they'll help families learn how to talk about the disaster.
"Weave the story of what happened in your family on May 22nd, 2011 - (that) is your story and should be very much a part of your family history," says Renee White of the Long Term Recovery Committee. "If the family can have that conversation as opposed to a stranger, professional that's going to be in and out of your home, it's so much more embedded in the family."
