The Restoration Essentials

We throw out the word "traumatized" all the time, but what exactly does it mean? When we experience trauma, our brain's chemistry changes. We may start to feel different, act differently, and react to things differently. So what, then, should we do when trauma happens? Restoration Essentials will help you understand trauma, so you can be a better parent, professional, or person. Learn from licensed therapists about the essentials of trauma and the brain, the dynamics of abusive relationships, and how to respond when traumatic events happen.
