A researcher and psychotherapist explains how trauma affects children and teens, and describes what can be done to help. Ginny Sprang, PhD, executive director of the Center on Trauma and Children at the University of Kentucky, explains how psychiatrists define trauma. Trauma can include direct exposure to physical or sexual harm, witnessing such harm, learning about a life-altering event such as a parent’s death, or repeated exposure to details of a traumatic event. However, the way each person interprets the traumatic event is also a factor in determining how severe it is.
