A lack of experience for early post-traumatic interventions for children was observed after the terrorist attacks perpetrated in 2015 and 2016 in France. The clinicians involved in the medico psychological emergency units (CUMP) had to quickly adapt their interventions to help children and their families seeking assistance. This article aims to examine how the Post-Immediate Psychotherapeutic Intervention (IPPI) based on the debriefing technique commonly used by the CUMP could be adapted to this age.
