Trauma Podcast: Trauma Informed Parenting
Trauma by definition is a “distressing experience”. We can all agree that during this time we are all facing some distressing experiences. This podcast is informative and offers tips on how to buffer trauma in young children.
“This episode has it all -- neuroscience, parenting, and real life stories. Dorothy Stewart and Alexandra Dutton are joined by Julie Kurtz, MFT who has written two books on trauma. She works with young children who have experienced trauma as well as their teachers and caregivers. Trauma is experienced by 50% of children under the age of 8. The good news: With knowledge of how to help children feel safe and discuss their emotions, we can help them move past events that can otherwise permanently affect their brains.”
