Children, Teens, and the Japan Disaster
As we all know, Japan is suffering through a horrific disaster caused by the 9.0 earthquake, tsunami, and probable meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear power plants. Unfortunately, this crisis will not end any time soon. I have already heard a variety of fears that young clients have expressed as they grapple with this tragedy. Children and teens who have, themselves, experienced traumas and/or losses will be more susceptible to what has happened in Japan. The amount of news that is watched on television may also increase the anxiety level of children and teens.
