Abstract

Psychotherapy work with children traumatized in the terrorist act at Beslan is used as an example to illustrate a model of medical-psychological assistance developed by the authors. A complex of methods is described, consisting of “delayed debriefing” using stories and games, combined with serial drawing and storytelling methods, used in accordance with crisis psychotherapy practice. We present observations showing that these methods allow contact to be made with children to uncover their feelings associated with the psychologically traumatizing situation and to obtain detachment from those feelings.
