Building Resilient Parents/Caregivers, Children and Families
Trauma is an event or experience that is emotionally painful or threatening, that overwhelms a person’s ability to cope. Trauma can be a one-time event like a car accident or ongoing like racism, poverty, or domestic violence. It can happen in the home, school, or neighborhood. The impact of a traumatic event can stay with us for months, years, or a lifetime.
What happens to us is only part of our story.
Resilience is the ability to adapt to life’s challenges and recover our sense of purpose and wellbeing.
There is hope and healing beyond the hurt.
