There's a large lack of scientific evidence on how to help children who've experienced traumatic events.
The Sandy Hook shootings, 9/11, and violent storms can all have a major impact on the psyche of young children, but a new study shows there's little evidence of the best ways to help kids cope and avoid long-term, negative consequences.

There was no evidence medications helped.
