Earlier this summer, Drs. Cassandra Kisiel and Tracy Fehrenbach, at the Center for Child Trauma Assessment, Services and Interventions (CCTASI) at Northwestern University, a partner in the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN), launched a public awareness campaign and short film entitled “Remembering Trauma: Connecting the Dots Between Complex Trauma and Misdiagnosis in Youth.” This 16-minute film highlights the story of a traumatized youth from early childhood to older adolescence, illustrating a wide range of complex trauma reactions as well as interactions with providers working in multiple service settings.
We are excited to announce the official launch of “Remembering Trauma, Part 2: Expert Commentary,” which is now available for viewing on our website, http://www.rememberingtrauma.org. Part 2 of the film includes poignant trauma-informed commentary from real world professionals while incorporating scenes from the narrative Part 1 film. Interviews include professionals who work across child-serving settings, including school, juvenile justice and mental health. We hope this version of the film will be a useful resource in training and education, in your work with both family members and providers across a range of service settings.
DISCLAIMER: This film is inspired by a true story. This story shows the various ways that trauma can impact youth. It contains adult language and includes scenes with family violence and sexual assault, which may be upsetting to watch. It is strongly recommended that you view this film in the presence of a trusted adult that can offer support as needed.
