Have you ever wondered why some students react in a certain way to some situations? It’s all too easy to blame ourselves or others for our shortcomings and compulsions. But sometimes, trauma is to blame for inexplicable reactions and unhealthy habits.
So instead of asking ourselves, “What’s wrong with you?” we should shift the question to “What happened to you?” Trauma is difficult to address, and sometimes we don’t even realize the profound effect it can have even in adult life. Experiencing abuse or neglect as a child can change how we respond to stress and how we see the world.
In What Happened to you? by Dr. Bruce Perry and Oprah Winfrey, we will explore powerful scientific and emotional insights into the way so many behave the way we do. As a survivor of neglect and abuse as a child, Oprah has joined forces with Dr. Perry to advocate for trauma survivors. Together, they teach how those who experience trauma can address it head-on and find healing.
