“Millions of children are affected by physical and sexual abuse, natural and technological disasters, transportation accidents, invasive medical procedures, exposure to community violence, violence in the home, assault, and terrorism. Unfortunately, the emotional impact of exposure to trauma on children is often unappreciated and therefore untreated, and yet the impact of exposures to disaster and violence is profound and long-lasting.” (Lubit, Roy et al. “Impact of trauma on children.” Journal of psychiatric practice vol. 9,2 (2003): 128-38. doi:10.1097/00131746-200303000-00004)
