Bryce's Story

Bryce's grandmother reports that he is having nightmares and is very "jumpy." He scares easily at loud noises. Bryce is sometimes withdrawn and will not talk and he has had a few anger outbursts.

Bryce has experienced multiple traumatic events (chronic trauma) such as the death of his father, witnessing family violence, physical abuse by his mother's boyfriend, and separation from his primary caregiver and these events are having an impact on Bryce's functioning and sense of safety (complex trauma).
