Abstract

Millions of children each year are treated for acute physical injuries in the United States. Many of these youth have pre-existing emotional or behavioral difficulties and many develop negative mental health sequelae from the injury event. Coordinated care from the time of injury on is necessary to provide support, information, and education to families of injured children as well as to identify at-risk youth to develop targeted interventions. This article reviews the types of traumatic injury that children experience, the ways in which these evens can affect children and families, and highlights clinical interventions that are useful with this population.
