When children are in school, as a parent, you'd think it's the safest place they can be, but what happened in New Town, Conn. undermines everything we believe in.

The survivors, the children in particular, face a lifetime of hurt, according to Phoenix psychologist, Dr. Ron Lavit.

"I think this is a problem they will never overcome," said Dr. Lavit.

Lavit has evaluated and treated war veterans soon after returning from war zones and expects the survivors of the Conneticut massascre to experience Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

"They'll always be the hurt, pain, sorrow, depression, feelings of loss," he said.

Lavit believes families might be able to help children cope by introducing religion, spirituality and/or therapy.
