This is Petrea King from Quest For Life.
In discussing approaches to children who have experienced a traumatic event, Petrea has a lovely tone and some great insights into what is happening for kids and how adults might help them through it.
A great challenge for Kids Thrive artists is working with kids in ongoing trauma from poverty and chaos – an unceasing war zone. How do children find respite? Petrea has some great reminders for those of us around children who experience trauma; to remember that kids are hyper vigilant, good at overhearing adult conversations and checking for how present we are.
Worth a look and listen.
