Who wants to believe that kids, even very young ones, can develop PTSD? I certainly don’t. But as my family knows, many children do develop PTSD. And because children are small and vulnerable and dependent, the causes of PTSD in children can be very surprising. The latest video in my series at Rising Above Ministries (RAM) about PTSD in children takes a look at what can cause PTSD in infants, toddlers, school-aged children, and teens.
To watch the video click on The Surprising Causes of PTSD in Children.
You can find more information about this subject in the Different Dream blog post, What Causes PTSD in Children? Causes of PTSD in children is discussed in even greater detail in the book, Does My Child Have PTSD?
