Childhood Trauma and Mental Health

Did you know most children and adolescents do not experience mental health problems following exposure to a single traumatic event?  However a small minority of children experiencing a traumatic event will go on to develop a mental health disorder, most commonly posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic stress (Smith et al, 2007).

PTSD is the most common mental health problem seen in children and adolescents following a traumatic event and one third of children will continue to meet criteria for the disorder for up to eight years following the traumatic event/s (Yule et al, 2000).

If your child has been exposed to a traumatic event or ongoing trauma such as parent conflict, family violence, separation and divorce, childhood sexual abuse, motor vehicle accidents, loss of a loved one, exposure to parent mental health issues, I can help.

Hi, my name is Jacqueline Hogan, I am a qualified Social Worker, Psychological Counsellor and Mindfulness Coach.  I have worked extensively with children, parents and families and assist people with most issues.

I provide ongoing counselling and intervention strategies including trauma-focussed CBT and mindfulness strategies and interventions to address the presenting and underlying issues of concern.
