There are sixteen to twenty million children and adolescents currently at risk for developing trauma-related problems. These problems include anxiety, depression, substance abuse, failure at school, susceptibility to victimization and abuse, and criminality. Many healthcare systems, teachers, and caregivers are only now beginning to recognize and address the problem. This program presents an overview of the effects of childhood trauma on the individual and on society. Program segments include the Range of Trauma, Survival Potential, Traumatic Memory, Self Esteem, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Addressing Trauma, Adult Trauma, and Trauma and Society. Particular emphasis is given to the criteria that define Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, including hyper-vigilance, hyper-reactivity, and dissociation.
