This article brought up unpleasant memories for me. I used to assist at a local psychiatric hospital for ECT (1970's), and, even with sedatives those patients were traumatized. It was also traumatizing for me as an RN. I can not imagine being with a small child receiving ECT, it is unimaginable. My own research is similar to this article. Counselling is the answer. (I am a retired RN and certified counselor)
