Adults and Trauma

The focus of this training has been on Child Traumatic Stress and how trauma affects a child. It is important to keep in mind that traumatized children may become traumatized adults.

When childhood trauma is not resolved, individuals may continue to live in a state of fear and helplessness. If a child does not receive successful intervention for trauma, they are more susceptible to long-term effects.
