Further once children are exposed to violence and have had some neurological episodes, there is hope that the impact of this trauma can be healed through:

  • Celebration
  • Collaboration
  • Comfort
  • Listening
  • Inspiring

These strong relational qualities are significant and important to help our children heal from the impact of trauma and violence.  The impact of such trauma is devastating but the healing process can be life transformational.
