PTSD in Children: Move in the Rhythm of the Child
by Frank Ochberg
Learn about symptoms, circumstances and therapeutic techniques for children with acute post-traumatic stress disorder.
Helping children who experience PTSD as a result of a one-time act of violence or trauma can be unsettling for many health professionals, counselors, school personnel or caretakers.  This video presents information on the symptoms of PTSD in children and the various stages of treatment for children faced with stress disorder. It gently emphasizes the spiritual aspect of coping strategies and offers sound advice on short-term, long-term and psychopharmacological therapy and the extenuating circumstances of treating PTSD in inner city children.  
Five noted PTSD specialists who include Frank Ochberg, Carl Bell, Kathleen Nader, Erwin Parson and Angie Panos present the most current information on the study of PTSD in children and its relevance in our communities.
This video is an excellent teaching tool for all individuals whose lives are dedicated to the resolution of traumatic experience. Specifically, therapists, social workers, school personnel, health professionals, and all members of community "critical incident" teams would benefit from viewing this presentation.
