Childhood Trauma:  a working definition

“Trauma happens when any experience stuns us like a bolt out of the blue; it overwhelms us, leaving us altered and disconnected from our bodies.

 Any coping mechanisms we may have had are undermined and we feel utterly helpless and hopeless.  It is as if our legs are knocked out from under us.

…the younger the child, the more likely she is to be overwhelmed by common occurrences that might not affect an older child or adult”.

Peter A. Levine and Maggie Kline

Never Give Up:   A Complex Trauma Film by Youth for Youth

Never Give Up: A Complex Trauma Film by Youth for Youth

This gripping film features a highly diverse cast of seven adolescents and young adults who examine the shared and unique challenges faced, mistakes made, and growth attained in the struggle to transcend legacies of developmental trauma. Unexpectedly insightful, unsentimentally poignant and always real, Never Give Up is an offering of collective wisdom, inspiration and hope for young people ensnared by adverse life experiences such as chronic neglect, violence, abuse, bullying, and exploitation from seven peers and mentors who came just before them and found their way through. This ground-breaking product developed by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) specifically for youth.

For more information on Complex Trauma, visit the NCTSN.org website at: http://nctsn.org/trauma-types/complex….

This project was funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The views, policies, and opinions expressed are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of SAMHSA or HHS.

The Atlantic’s Next America: Early Childhood project

 

 

“The Decade of the Brain:

George H.W. Bush declared the 1990s the ‘decade of the brain’.  Early childhood development programs received a major cash infusion.

The initiative also funded researchers who discovered that a child’s early experiences actually have a physiological impact on the brain.

A New Understanding of the Childhood Brain:  The Atlantic

 

Over the past decade, new research has revealed the link between early trauma and lifelong mental health issues. These discoveries have since revolutionized social work, healthcare, and early education. Policy changes enacted in response to our understanding of the biology of trauma are prioritizing earlier interventions like nurse home visiting services for at-risk families, and an increase in pre-kindergarten programs.

             “Nowhere to Hide” series links

Each separate, individual article in the series focuses on a single component of the workings of developmental trauma, via real life examples in short “60 second” soundbites, akin to “Public Service Announcements” (PSAs).  They are designed for sharing in social media networks to grow public awareness.

Trigger warning: 

the children’s experiences in the vignettes are unvarnished.  Their traumatic responses may trigger painful memories.
