According to the report, presented by Natal Community Staff Director Dr. Roni Berger in Beersheva on November One third of Sderot children, ages 13 to 18, have trauma-related learning disorders. 24, nearly half of Sderot's population has been either physically or emotionally harmed by Palestinian rocket fire.
Over 4, 000 Sderot residents are suffering from symptoms of post-traumatic-stress disorder (PTSD), while one third of Sderot children, ages 13 to 18, have trauma-related learning disorders.
Dr. Roni Berger explained that there were several reasons why Sderot residents suffered from higher degrees of trauma than residents of other Israeli communities within rocket range: "The fortifications in Sderot are poorer, and the population is weaker as well.
"Only a minority of those suffering from PTSD actually seek help," Dr. Roni Berger told Sderot Media Center. NATAL, a non-government organization seeks to reach out to those Sderot residents who otherwise would not receive help. "NATAL's staff has been going door to door for the past two years in our mobile units, visiting Sderot families and offering them social support," says Dr. Berger. "We teach these families how to cope with the stress and panic that result with each rocket attack.
"In a way, this is much more effective then simply providing residents with a psychological diagnosis," adds Dr. Berger. "NATAL health professionals give Sderot residents the skills to relax. One of the most important things is for the residents to learn to talk about their experiences [with rocket attacks].
"Unfortunately those residents who don't know how to cope, become worse," says Dr. Berger.
