    Article - En anglais



    A prospective study of children exmined both before and after a flood disaster in Bangladesh is used to test the hypothesis that stressful events play a causal role in the development of behavioral disorders in children.


    Six months before the disaster, structured measures of selected behavioral problems were made during an epidemiological study of disability among-2-to 9-year-old children.

    Five months after the disaster, a representative sample of 162 surviving children was reevaluated.
