Changing the Face of Child Mental Health, 2006
In recent years, we have learned a great deal about the responses of children, families and communities to traumatic events.We have learned how disasters victimize children in many ways; they can disrupt families and communities, destroy homes and separate children from their loved ones. Children’s responses to trauma differ from those of adults and are based on a combination of factors: preexisting temperament, the nature of the trauma and what services were provided.We know that in times of stress adults and children alike may go through periods of shock, develop physical complaints and become angry, sad and/or scared. Children may also become more irritable or regress in their behavior and worry about the safety of those who care for them.
