Impact of Trauma on Children Living in War Zones

Abdel Aziz Thabet, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, School of Public Health, Al Quds University, Gaza Strip
Panos Vostanis

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A number of epidemiological studies in the Gaza Strip have established high prevalence rates of PTSD and other mental health problems, which were strongly associated with exposure to traumatic events.  These decreased during the peace process, but recent studies have found them to increase since the onset of new political violence. 

A school-based group intervention based on the de-briefing therapeutic model found no positive benefit in the presence of ongoing violence.  A subsequent trial of expressive therapy reached similar findings.  Other recent studies have investigated the prevalence of ADHD; and mental health problems among children living in orphanages and those in labour.
