From Trauma to Resilience: Short-Term Help, Long-Term Gains
Today's educators and childcare professionals are on the front lines of a battle they may not even know they're in: the fight against trauma in children. No doubt you've seen evidence of it yourself: the "unreachable" boy who doesn't respond to any kind of treatment or therapy. The "bad" girl who persists in disruptive, negative behavior despite all-out efforts to help her. The truth is, trauma in children manifests itself in behaviors that defy logic, reason and the best intentions of teachers, counselors and social workers.
The issue is bigger than anyone realized. It wasn't until 1990 that TLC identified childhood trauma as the root cause of behavior issues that were beyond the reach of traditional cognitive therapies.
Today, TLC training programs are in place in more than 3,000 schools, community-based programs, treatment centers and childcare facilities across North America and internationally, and are giving parents, teachers and childcare professionals the early intervention tools and techniques it takes to turn young lives – and trauma-related behaviors–around.
