Common Trauma Behaviors

When we understand that all behaviors come from the brain, we can begin to build compassion and learn ways to come alongside our children. Children whose brains have been impacted by trauma frequently have behaviors such as lying, difficulty sleeping, food issues and more. It is also important to understand the impact of drugs and alcohol on the developing brain when we are raising children from foster care or adoption. It has been estimated that 80% of children from foster care have an FASD. Check out some of the resources below to learn more about some of these common behaviors and how must to support the children in our care.
