Children in a disaster: an overview.

Abstract

Most children have psychopathological reactions to disasters, which are individually-based and vary according to age, developmental level, proximity to family members, specifics of their situation, losses during and after the disaster, and the responses of the family and community. Treatment should be individualized since children's improvement is not determined by parental response.
