Trauma has become something of a buzz word lately.  If you are a parent, or supporter of parents, of children with special needs, you’ve likely heard “trauma informed”, “trauma aware” or some other variant used to describe programs, techniques, and clinical practice until you are just “trauma tired”.  None the less, we can’t very well discuss parenting without going there.  In this episode Ryan, Lori and Shawn attempt to set a common foundation for what we mean when we talk about trauma.  We think of this episode as a sort of foundation that we will build upon over time.
