With millions of children each year exposed to potentially traumatic events, there is a great need for accessible early preventive interventions that could promote recovery and decrease the chances of developing persistent posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS). But there is only a small number of published evaluation studies of such early interventions for children, and few have found clear evidence of preventing or reducing PTSS. We are working to close that gap with the development of a web-based intervention called Coping Coach.
