Alecia Richard, LF, a behavioral health licensed therapist with The Everett Clinic discusses trauma. Many people experience traumatic episodes during their lives and sometimes those negative experiences can get stuck in their memory. If you experience a trauma or a loss, processing and working through the event can help you become stable and secure more quickly. Children don't have the brain development to recognize that negative events aren't their fault and addressing that at the time, it can save them from a lifetime of not feeling good enough. Anytime you feel like something is bigger than you know what to do with is a great opportunity to seek some help.
