Childhood Trauma Can Affect Adult Life
Childhood can be considered the “simpler times” of life, with: few worries, few responsibilities, and lots of laughter and joy laughs. But not everyone gets to enjoy their childhood.

Adults often assume childhood traumas are forgettable; however, studies show that they are not. Traumatic experiences can affect children in the long run. They may re-experience the trauma every time similar things happen, experiencing the same distress they felt years ago.
Not every child develops PTSD from childhood trauma. However, it’s still important to be aware of the potential signs.
If your child has experienced trauma recently, look for these signs:
● Intense fear or sadness
● Negative thinking
● Lack of appetite
● Attention Issues
● Loss of interest in academic and other activities
When your child experiences these symptoms, consulting with a therapist may be helpful. Our intake team will work with you to find a suitable therapist for individual and family counseling needs.
