PTSD Treatment for Children and Young People
For children and young people with PTSD, trauma-focused CBT is usually recommended.
This will normally involve a course of 8-12 sessions that have been adapted to suit the child’s age, circumstances and level of development. Where appropriate, treatment will include consulting with and involving the child’s family.
Play therapy can be used to treat young children with PTSD who are not able to deal with the trauma more directly. The therapist uses games, drawings, and other methods to help children process their traumatic memories.
Treatment with medication is not usually recommended for children and young people with PTSD.
