Neglected victims of homicide : The needs of young siblings of murder victims : Preventing violence among youth.
Fifteen children, aged 7-18 years, were interviewed an average of five months after the murder of an older sibling.
Although most showed significant symptoms of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and psychosocial impairment, few had received any community or mental health system support or services for these symptoms.
Specific problems and needs are identified and implications for research and practice are discussed.
