Wounded Places – The Raising of America Film Series, Episode 4

May 16 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Wounded Places: Confronting Childhood PTSD in America’s Shell-Shocked Cities asks:
Why do so many children in America from poor, urban neighborhoods exhibit signs of PTSD? How can we help them? How can we improve community conditions?
PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) isn’t just about combat-scarred soldiers. Too many of our children, especially children of color in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty, are showing the effects of unrelenting structural racism, street violence and domestic instability. And their symptoms look a lot like PTSD.
Shown in collaboration with the Tompkins County Coalition for Families.
