This is a topic that I'm very interested in. I have adopted 6 kids from the foster system (3 sib groups). They had extremely traumatic lives. In addition, I taught for almost 25 years in an inner city public school system. These signs, effects, etc. are so true. There are some good tips and links that I would like to make reference to in the future. Glad that I'm able to access this later also. Good info!
