The Effects of Trauma

As we learn more about Reactive Attachment Disorder we are seeing a shift in how we look at our children. Really, they have been traumatized and thus manifest symptoms of trauma. Dr. Bruce Perry and others have some very good articles out there that can help you to understand your child's stress responses better.
