The medical community is just beginning to understand the affect that a traumatic experience, or a traumatic childhood, can have on human development. The impact of trauma can change who we are emotionally, socially, intellectually and even physically.
Understanding the potential far-reaching effects of trauma is an essential part of appropriate patient care.
On this episode of The Rounds, Dr. Kristen Iniguez discusses the fascinating, complex and essential issue of trauma. Iniguez specializes in caring for children who are potential victims of abuse and is medical director of the Marshfield Child Advocacy Center.
