Given my own history with childhood trauma and the effects it’s had on my life, I realize that there are so many suffering in this world, and they don’t know where to turn to for support. One goal of this site is to provide resources and information so people know they’re not alone and to help those who need it find resources to support their recovery.
Children have a special place in my heart and there are many who are showing signs of trauma, yet not getting the support that’s essential for them to move through it so it doesn’t impact them later in life. This video is a relaxed conversation about trauma in general and offers some resources that speak to what trauma might look like for a child, as well as what the signs of potential trauma are in children. It encourages adults and parents to expand their definition of trauma and to set aside any feelings they might harbor that would prevent them from seeing the signs of trauma in the children around them.
