Children and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: What Classroom Teachers Should Know

Rae Pica with Dr. Patricia Van Horn, Susan J. Grosse & Susan S. Sawyers

There are over 1.8 million new cases of post-traumatic stress disorder every year in the United States alone. Many of the cases involve very young children and the causes are diverse and often underestimated. In this segment we provide educators with a basic understanding and tools for identifying possible PTSD in children, as well as guidance on what to do if it’s suspected a student or child is affected.
