“Trauma from Family Separations”
In our relationships with family, friends or colleagues, we may know children who have been separated from their parents due to a death, incarceration or a military deployment. Many of us are aware of research describing the disturbing effects of when a child is separated from his/her parents. Sadly, we are now witnessing how our government’s immigration policy is purposely separating children from parents without consideration for the devastating consequences this may have on a significant number of youth. In order to be better informed about the traumatic effects of forcibly separating children from their mothers/parents, the Potluck Society is hosting a presentation on this topic.
