Flashback, Trauma And Bullying

There are a range of problems and types of problems that we see in children and young people. These difficulties can be grouped into problem types. The aim is to not repeat the existing MindEd content but rather to highlight what can be found and why it matters. Although this session does not cover every topic in detail, the material within these sessions is highly relevant to parents grappling with difficulties.
