Responding to the Psychological Needs of Children after 9/11: A Review of the Literature
Hooker, Karen E.; Friedman, Howard
Online Submission
Having a body of literature on psychological sequelae of victims, assessments, and interventions following a trauma can help mental health workers to better understand the prior treatment responses and to plan for the future. In this article, we review the current status of published mental health research on children following September 11, including articles from fields of psychiatry, psychology, art therapy, drama therapy, and others. First, we present children's possible reactions to 9/11, followed by advice for caregivers, compiled from various articles and organized into common themes. Next, we discuss actual reactions and interventions from case studies, as well as the quantitative studies that have been published and their results. Recommendations and future directions for research and practice are presented.
