The war in Syria has reached intolerable levels of human suffering and despair. Hundreds of thousands of Syrians have been killed, hundreds of thousands have been trapped in besieged areas, and tens of thousands have been tortured. Children living through wars and conflict suffer many consequences including post-traumatic stress symptoms, psychosomatic symptoms, depression, anxiety, disturbed play, and behavioral, emotional, and sleep problems, suicide risk, substance use and physical health risks. This paper sheds some light on the best practices for trauma recovery, including Psychological treatments to Syrian refugees carriedon by SAMS (Syrian American Medical Society).
