But despite the risks of post-traumatic stress disorder, the Russians should avoid sending in counsellors, Prof. William Yule, an expert in childhood trauma at the Institute of Psychiatry, London, said."The first thing they need is to be reunited with their parents and to feel safe."
Prof. Yule, who advised the National Institute for Clinical Excellence on the NHS guidelines for post-traumatic stress disorder, said experts should take a back seat to start with.
"There is a suspicion that going in too soon might actually interfere with normal healing processes," he said.
"That can be exceedingly irritating to parents who are also traumatised," said Prof. Yule.
