ATN’s COVID-19 Response

TOUCHING TRAUMA AT ITS HEART

EMPOWERING TRAUMA-INFORMED FAMILIES, SCHOOLS, AND COMMUNITIES

You are not alone

ATN knows that the social distancing going on now can be VERY unsettling for our children impacted by trauma.  Their early adversities cause them heightened anxiety when there are changes and when the adults in their world seem tense.  Yet, we also have opportunities to increase connection, enhance our relationship with our children and model how to stay regulated when things are not “normal”.
