Impact of Childhood Trauma
August 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Are you a member of the community? Do you feel that trauma has affected you or your loved ones & led them to make wrong decisions? There are many different experiences that can constitute trauma. Childhood trauma is any event experienced by a child that threatens their life or bodily integrity & the decisions/lifestyle they decide to adopt as adults.
A study published in 2016 in Psychiatric Times noted that the prevalence of suicide attempts was significantly higher in adults who experienced trauma, such as physical abuse, sexual abuse, and parental domestic violence, as a child.
