Domestic Violence & A Child's Brain Development

Younger children are impacted more severely than older children by exposure to domestic violence.

MUST WATCH!! The impact of domestic violence exposure in the brain of young children.

Early Experiences shape the brains of younger children...that is what is suppose to happen.

The Brain of a child will become exactly what it is exposed to.

Bruce D Perry, MD, Senior Fellow Child Trauma Academy. "The tragic reality of children who grow up experiencing domestic violence end up with mental health problems at much higher rates than those children who were irect victims of physical abuse".

The good news is the brain has the capacity to heal from these early exposures.
