Trauma can have a profound impact on children and their families.

If your child has experienced:

  • Community Violence
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Loss of a Loved One

It can cause unusual behaviors, such as:

  • Anger
  • Nightmares
  • Anxiety
  • Illness
  • Moodiness
  • Inattention
  • Depression
  • Clinginess
  • Distress

No one should have to suffer from the effects of trauma alone.

The Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress is here to help your family find answers.

You and your child will benefit from our:

  • Evidence based treatments
  • Expert team of licensed social workers, psychiatrists, nurses, and mental health counselors
  • Extensive research efforts to discover policies and practices that best support children and families

Elizabeth Thompson, Director of the Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress (CCFTS) at Kennedy Krieger Institute, provides tips to help parents detect stresses in their child and describes how CCFTS works with families to overcome trauma.

Help is just a phone call away.
