Helping Children

The National Institute of Mental Health offers a very extensive document titled Helping Children and Adolescents Cope with Violence and Disasters, that describes how young people react to trauma, how to help them, the condition known as post-traumatic stress disorder and its treatment, and the most recent research findings. You can find it on the web at [www.nimh.nih.gov/publicat/violence.cfm], along with other, less detailed fact sheets. Contact National Institute of Mental Health, 6001 Executive Blvd., Room 8184, MSC 9663, Bethesda, MD 20892; 301-443-4513; {www.nimh.gov}.
