While many children will have assimilated the disaster as a learning experience into their developing lives and even gained confidence in their capacities to overcome adversity, others may have lost confidence and a sense of security.
Children may need extra attention and explanations and help to readjust to new relationships, schools, friends and routines. They may need help to grieve and express their fears and emotions.
Trauma therapy may be required, using the same principles as for adults, but using special methods for children, as in earlier phases. Parental and school collaboration should be enlisted. Ultimately the child makes realistic sense of its disaster experiences according to its developmental phase and is able to creatively use them within its life’s trajectory.
