It’s Friday Again on the Morning Zone!
Today, we will get back to our two special series, in The Morning Zone:
7:07AM MST: Kids-At-Risk…Today we will focus our discussion on two recent articles that caught our attention. First, There’s no good evidence to say what types of treatment might help ward off anxiety and stress disorders in kids and teens exposed to traumatic events, according to a new analysis.Researchers said that a few psychological interventions, including talk therapy and school-based programs, “appear promising” for helping young people cope with the kind of trauma stemming from accidents, mass shootings and natural disasters. But so far, there are too many holes in the data to know what to recommend for children’s long-term health and wellbeing, according to Meera Viswanathan from RTI International in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, and her colleagues. Secondly, The teen birth rate in the U.S. fell to a historic low in 2011, according to statistics released Monday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The numbers were part of an “Annual Summary of Vital Statistics: 2010-2011″ published online by the journal Pediatrics ahead of its March issue. The report detailed fertility, birth, and delivery statistics across all groups of women considered to be of childbearing age. Overall, the U.S. birth rate among younger women declined, while the birth rate among older women increased.
