Making Sense of our Complex ChildrenVolume #4 – Mood Disorders & Trauma

Dr. Federici clearly explains how trauma induced mood disorders drive much of a child’s negative and acting-out behaviors. He gives insight as to how anxiety, depression, mood swings, compulsive behaviors, sleep difficulties, poor social skills, reactivity, and defiance all connect back to a child’s inability to regulate themselves. Solutions that center on a parent’s ability and the family’s ability to provide an end to the child’s fear cycle are discussed in this interview.
