As a parent, we all want to keep our children safe. Regardless of how had we try, sometimes an event happens that is out of our control. If your child or teen has experienced a traumatic event or events then you know that the impact can be lasting. Their experience of the trauma often shapes the way they interact with the world. It also often shapes how they feel about themselves. Although it would be wonderful to be able to wave a magic wand and take all the pain away, you can’t. What you can do is get your child or teen into counseling. There is research about the effectiveness of counseling to help people move through trauma. Through counseling trauma doesn’t need to have as much control of their life.
If your child experienced trauma, EMDR is an amazing therapy that can help relieve the pain. EMDR is designated as an effective treatment by the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and many other international health agencies.
