Those who witness violence or are exposed to trauma can reach in many different ways. Violence can have a negative effect on a child's sense of confidence and self-esteem. Seeing frightening or distressing events can take away a person's basic sense of security. This can change the way children and adults feel about themselves and the world around them. Understanding what your feelings are is the first step in helping you and other members of your community to recover from the harmful effects of violence.

After a violent event, peope often try hard to forget. But for many, including children, forgetting doesn't work. Instead they can show their distress in behaviors that cause problems for themselves and he adults around them.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
For some, going over the events with others they can trust can help them feel less alone. Giving them time to ask questions and talk about their concerns can be very helpful. For some children, talking about what happened may be difficult.
They may show their distress in other ways. Recognizing the many different reactions can be important in helping you, your child and others to recover.
