The lasting impact of trauma
While the scars aren’t always visible, when children experience trauma from violence, neglect and abuse, it impacts healthy development and can lead to behavior problems, difficulties in school and physical health issues.
Prevention, early detection and intervention are critical for healthy futures and ending the cycle of inter-generational trauma.
Founded in 1906, Children’s Institute is the largest agency of its kind working to transform the lives of children exposed to adversity and poverty in Los Angeles.
