More than 2 in 3 kids report at least one traumatic event by age 16.
It’s even worse among Latino kids. In fact, 28.7% of Latino kids have experienced four or more traumatic experiences.
In order to suspend judgement and help children heal, it is important to recognize the signs of traumatic stress and understand the short- and long-term impacts.
