The authors of this paper present results of researches over exposition of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms and effects of psychosocial assistance with children. The existence, time of appearance, way of experiencing of a traumatic experience and exposure of PTSD symptoms has been determined. The method used structural interview, PTSD questionnaire for children and the Scale of Evaluation of Children’s Engagement in the Group Work. The programme of psychosocial protection has included displaced and domicile children in the age from 7 to 11 and from 12 to 16. Girls were significantly more present than the boys (p<0,005). The applied therapeutic methods gave significant impact on increased readiness to talk (p<0,005). The time confirms that the effect of methodological steps and therapeutic treatment with children is successful and applicable in the future activities.
