Perrin, Sean LU ; Smith, Patrick and Yule, William (2000) In Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry and Allied Disciplines 41(3). p.277-289
Abstract
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a syndrome de®ned by the intrusive reexperiencing of a trauma, avoidance of traumatic reminders, and persistent physiological arousal. PTSD is associated with high levels of comorbidity and may increase the risk for additional disorders over time. While controversies remain regarding the applicability of the PTSD criteria to very young children, it has proved to be a useful framework for guiding assessment and treatment research with older children and adolescents. This article presents an overview of the literature on the clinical characteristics, assessment, and treatment of PTSD in children and adolescents.
