PTSD Support and Resources

We have two daughters adopted through foster care that suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  I'm not going to lie, it can be quite scary at times.  It always amazes me how quickly triggers can send them spiraling out of control.  My husband and I have learned a lot over the years.  I don't know what we would have done in the beginning if it weren't for his career in mental health counseling.

Together we've put together this page filled with our best PTSD support and resources for families. Whether you're looking for ideas to help your child through the healing process, comfort when times are tough, or tips to use along the way, you'll find it here!  You'll also note there are a few posts that also talk about secondary trauma for those who may be struggling with that.
