Abstract

Moving from a theoretical action science approach, the authors propose a community-oriented intervention model designed to prevent and limit traumatic reactions in children exposed to war and military violence. A case study of 500 Palestinian children from the Tulkarm Region (West Bank) to illustrate the intervention model and future directions are discussed.
