Helping Children Cope with the Stresses of War: A Manual for Parents and Teachers

An essential tool for parents and teachers in helping children cope with the stresses of war and other forms of systematic violence. Based on methods and approaches that have been tested extensively in war-torn Lebanon, this book gives descriptions (illustrated by reproductions of children's drawings) of nine wartime experiences that cause stress in children. General guidelines on handling the 'problem behaviours' with which children of various ages respond to stress are also presented. Ten specific problem behaviours ranging from bed-wetting to risk-taking are described, followed by practical advice on how parents and teachers can deal with them.
