Processing Events to Avoid Trauma
Have you (or your child) experienced rough times? It could be what seems like a minor event like a scraped knee, or major emotional trauma. Are you having a hard time dealing with them? If so, this episode is for you.
Grab your Finish Strong Guide and together we’ll process what you’ve been through this year, no matter what 2020 has brought to you or taken from you. Let’s forgive the mistakes made, heal lingering wounds, reflect on the lessons learned, and finish the year strong!
