Syrian children have post traumatic symptoms

9 January, 2013

Health professionals told our trainers that Syrian children had survived the most terrible situations and suffered from post traumatic symptoms as a consequence.

Psychologists Unni Heltne and Atle Dyregrov held a training in the Teaching Recovery Techniques manual for Syrian health professionals in Amman 15 to 17 December.

All participants work with children who have been affected by the conflict in Syria. Most of these children have escaped to neighbouring countries.

In addition to the TRT, participants also learnt more about children’s grief reactions and how they can help children who have lost family members.
