In order to provide Trauma-Informed Care, we must first understand what trauma in children can be. Children who have experienced traumatic events need to feel safe and loved. All parents want to provide this kind of nurturing home for their children. However, when parents do not have an understanding of the effects of trauma, they may misinterpret their child’s behavior and end up feeling frustrated or resentful. Their attempts to address troubling behavior may be ineffective or, in some cases, even harmful.
The resources on this page are designed to provide greater insight into these kinds of things.
