Fears of American Children Following Terrorism
Burnham, Joy J.; Hooper, Lisa M.
Journal of Loss and Trauma, v13 n4 p319-329 Jul 2008
Two months after 9/11, the fears of children and adolescents in Grades 2-12 were examined utilizing the American Fear Survey Schedule for Children and Adolescents (FSSC-AM). Fear intensity scores and age and gender differences are reported. Terrorist-related content on the FSSC-AM (e.g., terrorist attacks, our country being invading by enemies) was also examined in a pre- and post-9/11 comparison. Implications and directions for future research are discussed.
