B, C, D
My reasoning: Anxiety about self and family's safety is an initial reaction after an individual's safety has been in jeopardy. Each member of the family has a different way of coping. Family members are all at different levels of maturity and have different coping skills. Some family members have difficulty accepting help. Different family members will respond in various ways to offers of help due to each person's individuality and coping style. Communication is difficult for most clients after a sudden crisis, so it is unlikely that they will talk to the nurse openly and freely. All family members will process the experience at about the same pace is incorrect because family members' different maturity levels and coping skills will affect how quickly or slowly they process the experience.
