There are a number of factors in determining the appropriateness of treatment.

1. Is this emotional distress disrupting daily functioning, threatening to overwhelm the child or interfere with age-appropriate emotional development?

For example, parental divorce is an emotionally upsetting experience that children react to in a variety of ways. If a child's reaction lasts longer than a month and is prevalent in other settings besides home, this indicates that normal functioning has become disrupted.

Recently our area was hit by tornadic weather that resulted in a loss of lives, and damaged property that will change the landscape for many years to come.  Those involved gathered together to help each other through, clean up debris and begin the process of re-building.  With all of this, a sense of community resulted.   Some time has passed and those who have experienced, witnessed and even responded to the community, are now getting anxious at the approach of future weather related issues.
