News stories about domestic violence are all over the place.  Attack at a school?  Acts of terrorism? Natural disasters?  Violence in a community?    All these events leave us shocked, disbelieving and disgusted.  But how often do these types of actions leave us thinking about the children involved?  According to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, one in four school kids has been exposed to trauma that can affect both ability to learn and ability to function.  So what do you do if a child you know is one of the four?  Join us Saturday as Dr. Steven Marans, a Yale professor and director of The National Center for Children Exposed to Violence, joins us to talk about the children who are often forgotten or in the shadow of shattering events.
