At the 2015 Changing the Odds Conference, four of our Momentous Institute staff spoke about trauma. This is a long video, but the topic is incredibly powerful and important. We invite you to grab a tissue and take a look. The stories and research shared here will change the way you view difficult children and will give you new insight into the children you work with. Feel free to divide the video up into four digestible pieces by watching each talk on its own as you have time. Each talk is about 12-14 minutes long. They are:

What is Trauma? by Jessica Trudeau

The Misdiagnosis of Trauma by Matthew Leahy

The Trauma of Poverty by Rhonda Vincent

Play and Complex Trauma by Karen Dumas

Thank you for watching and opening your hearts and minds to this important work of helping children in trauma hold on to hope.
