Childhood Trauma Discussion
There are two parts to this discussion. For each one, please reply with 200+ words (for a total of 400+ words).
1. What have you seen and learned about childhood trauma from non-academic contexts? I’m interested here in how our culture(s) present childhood trauma. How have you seen it presented and dealt with in the media? In your particular communities? Or is it something you haven’t seen or heard much about?
This subject can be very triggering, so please be particularly cautious if you decide to share personal experiences of your own or of people you know.
2. Watch the video linked to below and respond with what stood out to you. Please be specific, and make at least one explicit connection to the textbook.
The video discusses sexual assault and the presenter’s childhood abuse. If it would help you to have an alternate viewing assignment, please do not hesitate to message me via Canvas and I will gladly arrange that with you.
