Accidents are inevitable but burn injuries can be traumatic and distressing for the affected individual and their family, with a prolonged period of recovery. In this short review, emotional difficulties in parents (particularly depression) as both anantecedent and a consequence of burn injuries to children will be discussed, as well as intervention considerations to help families to cope with such distress.
