Impact Of Trauma In Early Childhood: Tips To Deal With Traumatized Kids

Understanding the impact of trauma: Early childhood trauma refers to the traumatic experience that occurs in children aged 0 to 6 years. As children are unable to describe /verbalize their reactions to a threatening and dangerous situation, their response to trauma is different as compared to older children/adults. The trauma could be the result of intentional violence like child physical or sexual abuse, or domestic violence or the result of natural disaster, accidents, or war. They may also experience traumatic stress in response to painful medical procedures or sudden loss of a parent/ caregiver.
