Following exposure to crisis events (such as natural disasters, acts of violence, and the death of a friend or family member) it is not unusual for children to display symptoms of acute distress (such as shock, crying, anger, confusion, fear, sadness, grief, and pessimism). In most cases these reactions are temporary and gradually lessen in the days and weeks following the event. This handout describes how to identify severely traumatized children so as to better ensure they get timely access to the professional counseling they will require.
