Trauma In Children

Symptoms of trauma in children can look different in each child. But, if you notice any of the symptoms listed below be sure to reach out to a child therapist.

Or schedule a free consultation with one of our child therapists.

Symptoms of Trauma in Children


Overly anxious.

Have strong startle responses, and shut down frequently or withdraw.

Become overwhelmed beyond their current coping skills in non-abusive circumstances like: 

accidents, medical care, death of someone close, and other life events.


In some cases, a child’s development physically and emotionally will become stunted.

Children who experience trauma can be avoidant of experiences associated with the event.


If your child exhibits symptoms of anxiety consider giving us a call. We are ready to help.
