Results of studies and psychological treatment work with children who suffered during the terrorist act in Beslan (2004) are used to describe the characteristics of one of the typical sequelae of psychological trauma in children - regression, i.e., reversion to types of behavior typical of earlier age periods. The stages in provision of psychological support to these children during the post-traumatic period (over two years) using play-based approaches, various pedagogic approaches, including restoration of lost skills, are discussed. The authors regard the cultural aspect as being of particular importance for all approaches.
