Large public health studies now confirm that the environment children are raised in has a strong effect on their brain development. Chronic stress in the home during the first five years of a child's life can have a lasting impact on their physical and mental health as an adult. What does this mean for the pastoral and peer counseling we do within the church? What does God's word have to say about the far reaching impacts of the fall and the ways they affect systems, communities, families, and individuals. How does the brain heal and how does an individual overcome trauma? In this class we will discuss practical tools for working with families and individuals who are overcoming the impacts of trauma.
