WITNESSING VIOLENCE CAN CHANGE A KID’S MIND. | YOU CAN HELP THEM HEAL.

New research shows that witnessing traumatic events, like domestic violence, shootings, or even fighting, can impact the physical development of a child’s brain — potentially leading to lifelong health and social issues. But you can help reverse the effects. The "Changing Minds" campaign will teach you about the science of childhood trauma and how five everyday gestures can make a world of difference.

These PDFs provide more detail on the impact of five key healing gestures: celebrate, collaborate, comfort, inspire and listen.
