This episode is being rebroadcast from Michele’s original radio show, “Your Life After Trauma.”

Sometimes we’re so wrapped up in ourselves and our trauma that it would never occur to us that our trauma is affecting family members. When a child experiences a trauma, it’s important to recognize that their sibling will most likely be affected as well as they watch their brother or sister go through the healing process.  

On this episode, Michele welcomed Ari Hahn, LCSW and Marie Rosado who shared why and how siblings have secondary trauma wounds. They also discuss how to help siblings manage, cope and heal. Join in and listen to this episode so you, too, can raise awareness on this very important topic.
