A new study shows that children are more likely to suffer PTSD if they think their reaction to a traumatic event is not 'normal'. While most children recover well after a traumatic event, some go on to develop PTSD that may stay with them for months, years, or even into adulthood. The research reveals that children begin down this route when they have trouble processing their trauma and perceive their symptoms as a sign that something is seriously wrong.

Interesting reading. The study is based on children who have experienced one off trauma events - hopefully the study will prevent children struggling in to adulthood and also whether there is opportunity to learn how best to support children who have experienced complex / enduring / ongoing trauma.
