High-profile incidents such as Hurricane Katrina and the Southeast Asia tsunami, war in Iraq, terrorism threats, and the shootings at Virginia Tech receive intense media coverage, as well as public and professional interest.
Being able to communicate what has happened through pictures, play, and other media allows for emotions, events, and memories to be witnessed by others and is the powerful first step in addressing the needs of any trauma survivor.
