Must Watch

I found my family even if I lost my mother

Millions of children are being separated from their parents as a result of wars, natural disasters, human trafficking, and migrations. A psychologist thinks about how to help them heal. Millions of families are being destroyed worldwide by war, natural disasters, institutionalization, child trafficking, and unprecedented levels of internal and external migration. Separation has a negative impact on the children who are engaged. It is difficult to establish specific estimates because many of the listed categories, such as child soldiers and child trafficking, are underreported. There are undoubtedly more people being forced to flee their homes than ever before. In 2018, 70.8 million individuals had to flee their homes due to armed conflicts, wars, and natural disasters. A record number of children have been torn away from their parents as a result of the fact that more than half of those involved were under the age of 18, a new high. Typically, these events result in family divisions. Although there are many factors at play, climate change is beginning to have a substantial effect on violent conflict and mass migration. Climate change makes natural disasters like floods, droughts, crop failures, and famine worse while also limiting access to scarce resources. All of this exacerbates tensions and promotes migration and family breakup. This is not a fad that will come and go; it is a pattern that will last for centuries. Before World War II, psychoanalysts and intellectuals like John Bowlby, Mary Ainsworth, and Anna Freud looked for the processes that would explain why these divisions are so harmful.
