Trauma can result from an intense event that threatens a child’s safety and security. Intense and overwhelming feelings of fear, guilt, shame, mistrust, or helplessness can develop. (Via @DWMHA) We recommend that you limit viewing of social media and news content when traumatic events impact our community and/or nation. Contact our trauma certified staff here at Development Centers at 313.531.2500 if you have concerns for yourself or the behaviors of your preschooler, elementary aged child or teen.
