Children And Trauma with Petrea King

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.
