Abstract

Child disaster mental health research has been largely limited by investigation of one disaster at a time and inconsistent methods across different studies. This study assessed 160 survivors of 3 disasters with structured diagnostic interviews, asking about the behavioral and emotional disaster reactions their 266 children of ages 3-17. Most children had ≥1 postdisaster behavior change or disaster-related posttraumatic stress symptom. The children's postdisaster behavioral and emotional problems were associated with parental postdisaster psychopathology. The results underscore the importance of asking disaster survivors about their children's disaster reactions and considering parental disaster experiences and reactions in addressing their children's reactions.
