The Children's War: Their Reactions to Devastating Events.
Atwood, Joan D.; Donnelly, Joseph W.
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v10 n1 p11-18 Jan 2002
A thorough review of the literature reveals that there is little or no information on children's psychological reactions to devastating events, such as the Oklahoma City bombing, the Gulf War, or the recent destruction of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. This article explores children's psychological reactions in light of Piagetian theory. Suggestions for mental health counselors are presented. (Contains 19 references.) (GCP)
