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.

really good.
Suicide ideation is a very real phenomenon even with very young children and needs to be taken seriously and not passed off as something children say to get attention. Also, I think if a teacher hears a student talking about harming themself, a school counselor or school psychologist must be involved immediately.
Great suggestions! Useful content.
