Parenting Child Trauma
Children who have experienced traumatic events need to feel safe and loved. All parents want to provide this kind of nurturing home for their children. However, when parents do not have an understanding of the effects of trauma, they may misinterpret their child’s behavior and end up feeling frustrated or resentful. Their attempts to address troubling behavior may be ineffective or, in some cases, even harmful.

Trauma is an emotional response to an intense event that threatens or causes harm. The harm can be physical or emotional, real or perceived, and it can threaten the child or someone close to him or her. Trauma can be the result of a single event, or it can result from exposure to multiple events over time.
Potentially traumatic events may include but are not limited to:
- Abuse (physical, sexual, or emotional)
- Being separated from or loosing a loved one
- Witnessing harm to a loved one or pet (e.g. domestic or community violence)
- Natural disasters or accidents e.g. Australian bushfires, floods, car crashes etc.
