⇒ Childhood Trauma in Cultural Context – Gabriel Ruiz, LCPC – When looking at what trauma “is” and how it is “experienced,” we must look at the cultural context of the child and family. when it comes to processing trauma, a child’s culture typically falls on a continuum ranging from the traumatic disruption of a child’s individual mind to the disruption of an entire community’s way of life. As teachers, clinicians, and professionals, what do we do when it is not only the child’s mind, but the child’s entire cultural way of functioning that is overwhelmed by trauma? Further, how do cultures that privilege a collective mindset mediate childhood trauma when compared to more individualistic cultures?  Watch HERE.
