The National Child Traumatic Stress Network

When a child has experienced one or more traumatic events, and has reactions that continue to affect his or her daily life long after the events have ended, we call it Child Traumatic Stress. This stress can affect a child in many different ways and can even cause lifelong problems. Fortunately, even when children experience a traumatic event, they don’t always develop traumatic stress. As a parent or caregiver, you can play an important role in helping your children and teenagers recover from traumatic events.
