Through social media I saw an ad recently indicating something that caught my eye; childhood trauma and Dr. Bruce Perry – on the U.S. show 60 Minutes with Oprah. As a psychotherapist and child and youth care practitioner this is my work! This national attention for something I am so passionate about literally made me giddy.
Not of course for the trauma part but the fact this very important topic was being presented not to an audience of trauma therapists but everyday people like you. Trauma and understanding trauma is something that is relevant to every single person. It is not simply reserved for the catastrophic losses or tragic circumstances.
