Guest: Dr. Kate McLaughlin, Ph.D., assistant professor of psychology at the University of Washington  Every year in the US, reports of abuse or neglect involved more than six million children. The consequences of that tragic statistic are far-reaching in a child’s life – particularly on his or her ability to cope with emotions and trauma as they age.  A new study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry explains why that’s the case – and give hopes that these children can be trained to manage their emotional responses with the right help.
