The Best Reporting on PTSD in Children Exposed to Violence

Propublica post reblog.

Some very worthwhile reading on the breadth of PTSD in children who witness violence in the home, streets and their communities.

The reports are based on the US experience but may be worth considaration in culturaĺly different societies where children are living in ‘war zones’ in their own communities.
Post includes some valuable programs and for anyone working in the field with these kids an interesting look at the possible misdiagnosis of ADHD in these children……. You thought ADHD diagnosis was on the increase and maybe you challenged some of these as faulty….maybe this is one reason.
GREAT resource.
