Seeking Help for Your Child or Teen Who Struggles with Trauma Can Open Them Up to a World in Which They Can Flourish and Thrive
Having a child or teen who has experienced or been the victim of a traumatic event can be difficult. You may be feeling like you are overwhelmed with trying to understand the experience as well as understand your child’s reaction to the experience. You may feel guilt for being unable to stop the traumatic event from occurring or protect your child from the trauma. You may also feel guilt, frustration or be overwhelmed by changes in your child’s mood, personality and/or behavior. Your child or teen may feel isolated, shame, unaccepted by others and at times blamed for the trauma itself. They may be frustrated by a lack of understanding and a lack of emotional control. They may also lack the vocabulary to talk about the event, their feelings, reactions, etc. Connecting your child or teen with a therapist can help them gain an understanding of their emotions, vocabulary to openly discuss the event, gain emotional control, and effectively adjust to any changes as a result of the trauma.
Specific Challenges We Can Help Your Child or Teen With
We can help you and your child or teen work through difficult experiences, such as:
