How find the best children trauma treatment?by Quentin Hurel - 2013.02.11
Experts are focusing more and more on how to treat children exposed to non relational tragic events (accidents, natural disasters, war). After analyzing 6647 research abstracts on psychological and pharmacological treatments, the survey published in Pediatrics has said that more studies are needed to identify effective treatments for kids exposed to traumatic events. Interventions are always better than no treatment even if it efficacies are not evident. In the short term, not any pharmacotherapy intervention had showed benefit, while only a few psychological treatments had presented satisfied results. From now on, the Research must determine the best type of intervention for the prevention of post-traumatic stress symptoms, or the best treatment concerning its symptoms once children are affected.
