Episode Info:

I became aware of the Nexus Youth and Family Solutions. through Linda Barnhart, who worked at the same healthcare organization I did, but after I left. I've been wanting to address this topic and demonstrate the life-long damage that can be done to children and youth if trauma is NOT addressed and healed. Nexus CEO, Dr. Michelle K. Murray, was kind enough to to join us. When I was young, there was not much consideration of the traumas that young people experienced. I think the idea was that either the child would forget or their brain was so pliable that they would simply adjust and go on with their lives. Nothing could have been further than the truth. Parents feared the negative perception of the family, if the Dirty Laundry was aired. Even if a family was willing to take a child to a psychiatrist, there did not seem to be a lot that could be done. Perhaps talk therapy, later there were a few drugs available to elevate mood or have a calming effect. Join us!
