Trauma Informed Care
Do you know the #1 cause of death from age 1 to 46?
70% of adults experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime!
For decades, evidence has shown an undeniable connection between childhood trauma and chronic adverse reactions across the lifespan. Childhood traumatic experiences are associated with serious and persistent long-term physical, psychological, and substance abuse issues. In addition to adverse effects on physical health, research indicates that early childhood trauma has particularly adverse effects on adolescent self-esteem, coping skills, school performance, self-regulation, critical thinking, self-motivation, and the ability to build healthy relationships.
My Brother’s Keeper specializes in Trauma Informed Care. We believe that every child has experienced trauma and our reaction should not be “WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?" but instead “WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?” Identifying the root cause of behavior changes everything!
