There is usually a frustrating delay before seeing research findings in print. Nevertheless, these were the same communities that contributed to Seyda Eruyar’s research, as well as to previous WACIT visits and resilience events in Istanbul. Who says that one can not have fun and give serious messages at the same time?
Crucially, Seyda’s findings have tangible implications for interventions and services. Here is some evidence on what practitioners increasingly face, i.e. that they should be targeting BOTH past trauma (which was found to lead, as well established, to children and parent’s posttraumatic stress); and current adversities that, through parenting difficulties, were associated with behavioural problems.
