As professionals working in agencies that focus on treating young, traumatized children, we talk about trauma to EVERYONE – to our staff, to the parents who bring their kids in for services, and to the children themselves. This talk will focus upon critical elements of such talk with each of these populations – as well as the pros and cons of becoming a “trauma magnet” when you are known as someone who encourages such conversations.
