In today’s episode, we are going to unpick what trauma is and how it presents itself in the children you teach. With everything going on at school it’s sometimes easy to forget that a child’s reality might be very different from the other children’s in your class. It’s often so hard to conceptualise what life must be like for children who are experiencing trauma. Often we can reel of what they have experienced but we can’t understand it at our core. I have the unique experience of being a child who was living through trauma whilst attending primary school AND then being the professional therapist who got to see children living with trauma come into my playroom every day and literally see their world unfold as they would play out themes and scenarios and feelings every day. I wanted to share that insight with you this week.
