PTSD can persist for years in kids, but parents may not see it

A recent research published last month in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry on PTSD in parents and children evaluated post-trauma stress of parents and their children following a car accident requiring a hospital visit. Researchers found that for a percentage of children, PTSD symptoms persisted and when parents were also suffering from PTSD symptoms they were less likely to be aware of their childrens’ ongoing concerns.
