A big thank you to the University of Tennessee Nursing profession, Dr. Carole Myers for inviting me back to her podcast, HeathConnections. This time, I was in conversation with Dr. Allyson Nealabout childhood trauma. Tune in by clicking on the link below to listen to our discussion:
Childhood trauma refers to a frightening, dangerous, threatening, or violent event that a child finds overwhelmingly distressing or emotionally painful and which often results in lasting physical, mental, and emotional effects. Childhood trauma includes experiencing a traumatic event and witnessing a traumatic event that threatens the life or physical security of a loved one; witnessing, rather than experiencing, a traumatic event can result in what is called secondary trauma.
More than 2/3 of children report at least one traumatic event by age 16.
