Trauma involves a variety of tough events for kids such as divorce, grief & loss, motor vehicle accident, natural or man-made disasters, forms of abuse including verbal/physical/sexual, or witness to domestic violence or parental drug use. Medical conditions or even a culmination of multiple stressors may result in a trauma-induced response from your child. Children and adolescents experience trauma very differently. Dr. Allana Lee, DO, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, will address trauma, trauma informed care, and responses from parents and caregivers to facilitate a helpful reaction and connect persons to the care that they need.
This program will take place at Manchester Memorial Hospital's Auditorium.
