Published by the Chidren's Society.
Too many children and young people see or experience traumatic events such as abuse, violence, disasters, war, tragic accidents or major incidents such as terrorism. Some of these experiences may be one-off or short-term, but they may also be enduring, and it is important for adults to take note and help children understand and cope with their emotions following a traumatic event. This guide has been developed to help parents, carers and professionals supporting children and young people affected by traumatic events or experiences.
