TREATING TRAUMATIZED KIDS: WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

Death, family violence, abuse, bullying…it’s all traumatic, and it will happen in one form or another to more than two-thirds of American kids by the time they are 16. Some will figure out how to live with it, some won’t, but all will likely carry long-term effects in behavior, coping, physical health, and psychological health, into adulthood.

So how do we help them?

Dr. Anthony Mannarino and his colleagues have developed a therapy that can work – and there’s evidence to prove it. Mannarino is a professor at the Drexel University College of Medicine and vice-chair of the department of psychiatry at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, and he has years worth of follow up studies that show the Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach works. And that benefits not only the patients, but also friends, family and society in general.

Join us as we discuss kids and trauma, TF-CBT, and resources for families in need.
