Too many of our children, especially children of color in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty, experience adversity, violence, neglect and other forms of trauma and show symptoms similar to PTSD — except there is no “post.” Traveling to Philadelphia and Oakland, Calif., this 40-minute episode chronicles the stories of children shaken by violence and adversity and asks not “What’s wrong with you?” but “What happened to you?” and how can traumatized children and neighborhoods heal?
Admission is free, but please RSVP online. The event is presented by the Trauma Informed DC Initiative and ACEs Connection.
