Parenting a child who has experienced various forms of trauma can be confusing, discouraging, and frightening. Following one’s personal instincts doesn’t work with very anxious children. Dr. Monahon will discuss many ways in which parents can help young children. Dr. Monahon is the director of the Children’s Clinic in Northampton, Massachusetts and author of Children and Trauma: A Guide for Parents and Professionals.
