How a National Tragedy Can Psychologically Impact Children.
Redfern, Karen
This paper presents research that will assist educators in addressing children's needs in relation to dealing with traumas. It will aid educators and steer them in the proper direction in order to develop programs that address these needs within the school system. Parents and adult caregivers are the primary resources for identifying children at risk; however, the school environment is the setting where many symptoms are likely to emerge. Not all trauma survivors require treatment, but it is important for teachers and parents to work together to identify those individuals who need treatment or services. The Preventive Intervention Strategy instrument outlines symptomatic responses and first aid interventions based on age groups. Understanding the strategy has real classroom applications that may assist children who are at risk. By using the recommended techniques, educators can begin to facilitate a healing process and have a strategy for identifying children who may need more systematic treatment by psychological professionals.
