Abstract

Unfortunately, there has been little published material on the therapy of children who have experienced trauma or disaster. Generally, there are three types of specialized interventions that have been described: Individual Psychodynamic (Pynoos & Eth, 1986), Group Play Therapy (Galante & Foa, 1986) and Group Stress Inoculation Training (Ayalon, 1983). It is not clear how the majority of children who experience trauma receive treatment. Presumably, they are either treated in family therapy (see Chapter 13) or general individual play therapy (usually psychodynamic in nature).
