It's estimated that at any one time around 135,000 school children are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They may be survivors of abuse (physical, emotional or sexual) or bullying. Some may have been involved in a road accident, an accident at home, or any other traumatic event. This book provides teachers, support staff and other educational professionals with the information they need to really understand the implications of PTSD, and will enable them to ably and effectively support and educate a traumatised child. It addresses such questions as what can cause PTSD in young people? How might PTSD affect the education of children at school. How do children react to trauma?
