Resources for Parents

We know that having a child who is showing symptoms of trauma — unusual behavior, worrying, fear of being alone, etc. — can be difficult.

That is why we have put together this resource for parents. It is a place for parents to learn how to help their children, and how they can apply treatment to their child’s life.
