I witnessed their deaths first hand. In the moment, I felt my role was to be a rock for my mom. A year went by, and I started to feel all the bottled up emotions come to surface. Not only the impact of the losses but all the experiences in my life that I pushed deep down.
These lingering experiences became a dark umbrella over a very broken self. The thoughts of how I would end my life became so overwhelming that I felt like I might hurt to myself. I called the suicide hotline and was referred to The Whole Child.
I remember how scared I was to be vulnerable, to let someone know how I felt inside wondering if I was fixable. I came twice a week and Karla became someone I confided in. She opened my heart, my mind and my soul and served as the life vest I needed to stay afloat in life. I felt the need to let Whole Child know that I am alive, I am healthy, and I am so happy because of you.
Thank you! It happens; we receive a referral for a child who has experienced a traumatic event.

The psychoeducational material in the guides, written at a third- to fourth-grade reading level, may be used within any trauma-informed therapy model in the therapy office or sent-home for follow-up. Each therapy story illustrates trauma concepts, guides trauma narrative and cognitive restructuring work, and illuminates caregiver blind spots; the caregiver stories target issues that often become barriers to family trauma recovery. No therapist who works with young trauma survivors will want to be without this book, and school-based professionals, social workers, psychologists and others committed to working with traumatized children will find the book chock-full of game-changing ideas for their practice.
