“As a Child Protective Investigator with the Florida Department of Children and Families for eight years, I personally have experience working with countless children who were the victims of trauma and serious abuse, both physical and mental. One common thread I saw in these families, however, was that the perpetrators of the abuse, usually the parents or caregivers, were themselves victims of unresolved trauma. I often wondered how we could expect these parents to protect and nurture their children when they were dealing with years of their own emotional wounds from which they had not recovered. Therefore, if we hope to stop the cycle and work towards the goal of making families healthy, we must address childhood trauma as soon as we can in order to help prevent another generation of victims who without intervention could become the perpetrators of abuse...”
