More than two thirds of children report at least one traumatic event by age 16. Potentially traumatic events include:
Psychological, physical, or sexual abuse; community, school, or domestic violence; national disasters or terrorism; sudden or violent loss of a loved one; life-threatening accidents or illness, divorce, etc.
Symptoms resulting from trauma can directly impact a student’s ability to learn. They may be distracted by intrusive thoughts about the event preventing them from paying attention or might avoid going to school altogether. Traumatic events can disrupt a student's ability to manage leading to poor behavior, loss of instructional time, suspensions, and expulsions.
Today we welcomed Michael Flores, Licensed Counselor and Director of Brighter Possibilities Family Counseling in Fort Worth who provided helpful information for dealing with a child who has experienced trauma. He shared how to help your child cope with emotions, guidance for approaching the school to ensure sensitivity to the issue, and how to know if your child needs help.
