Traumatic events are very difficult to deal with, even for adults. Can you imagine how difficult it would be for young children or early adolescents to cope? When something traumatic happens, the shock can reverberate in our thoughts and negatively influence our emotions and perception of life for extended periods of time. It can even lead to suicidal thoughts. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed therapist and certified trauma professional as she discusses the psychological, emotional, physiological, and neurological effects of trauma among young children around the ages of 7-12.

I have a child that has had some issues and this has helped
me understand how some parts of the brain works. It did
help remind me to always listen and be aware.
