The impact of trauma and disaster on young children.
In the past few decades, the study of the impact of trauma and disaster on children has grown; however, information about the effects on very young children is still scarce in the literature. In some regards, the characteristics of stress in young children are similar to those of older children and adults; in other ways, their reactions are unique. These characteristics, as well as mediating factors and interventions with young children, are discussed. Suggestions for future research are offered.
