Detail:

It is recognised that 'trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood and untreated cause of human suffering' (Levine & Kline, 2007). Yet there is now evidence that shows us that unprocessed trauma can lead to increased mental health difficulties during adulthood and a host of social problems, such as drug use, school failure, anti-social behaviour, etc.

It can also lead to other problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), conduct disorders and dissociative disorders and unprocessed trauma can also lead to medical challenges, such as asthma and heart disease (Perry & Szalavitz, 2011)

When trauma is processed in the context of a warm and genuine relationship, the impact is minimalised if not altogether transformed into greater resilience, thus changing the impact on the child and their future.
