Trauma Information and Resources

Many children who are adopted have experienced some level of trauma, and as their parents it is important to educate ourselves about how this may impact their development. 

One thing we can all do to assist our children in overcoming the impact of trauma is learn how to support their resiliency.  Right now there are efforts going forward around Vermont to understand and address how trauma is impacting us  - watch for a Building Flourishing Communities training in your area or click here to find the contact information for the trainer in your area.
