Daun Kauffman: The Lucid Witness: Increasing Awareness of Childhood Trauma

Daun Kauffman has been working in elementary  school classrooms in Philadelphia almost every school day for the last 17 years. Trauma  is impacting the learning of at least 30% of his students. Some days are more  challenging than others. What’s especially challenging is knowing how few people are  aware and really understand the impacts of trauma in children’s physical brains, nor  how these children’s early experiences have life-long impacts. The potential for re traumatizing these children if we don’t become trauma-informed and Daun’s passion for  justice are daily motivators. Join us as Daun talks about the growing frustration that led  to creating Lucid Witness — a website devoted to raising awareness of the impact of early childhood trauma and his hopes for people using this as a resource for change.
