Terrorist attacks rank high on the trauma scale, but there are many other kinds of childhood trauma. This video helps parents identify and respond to trauma from parental divorce, the death of a parent or sibling, a life threatening accident or illness, extreme school violence, and natural catastrophic disasters, such as earthquakes, tornados and floods, as well as news of war or terrorist attacks. The suddenness of the event, the fear produced, the confusion, and the lack of coping skills make these events traumatic for many children. It is important for parents to know what to do in identifying reactions to these events in their children and, in turn, the appropriate responses to take.
