Part of a series on understanding, identifying, and responding to childhood trauma. Focuses on the effects that childhood trauma has on brain function. Introduces research that shows how systems in the brain are activated by trauma, and how trauma changes neuron response and cognitive pathways. These brain chemistry changes can result in severe problems in learning ability, mood, bonding, attachment, and in problem-solving. Shows how caregivers, teachers, and healthcare providers can deal with these symptoms.
