"Nearly 35 million U.S. children have experienced one or more types of childhood trauma. Almost half the nation's children have experienced at least one or more types of serious childhood trauma" - NSCH
At The Bridge to Recovery, we have dedicated over five decades to helping adults who carry pain from unresolved childhood trauma leading to emotional dis-ease. When childhood trauma is left unresolved, it can lead to many negative behavior patterns and emotional response systems in adulthood, including:
And much more.
Like adult trauma, childhood trauma can occur in a variety of ways. We have already focused on how family of origin trauma can severely impact our adult lives. Below you will find some other examples of childhood traumas.
While adult trauma can cause significant issues as well, because childhood trauma so often causes an interruption or incompleteness of biological developmental staging, the impact it can have on our adult response system is extraordinary.
While there are those that experienced childhood trauma and were met with all the necessary tools and resources to adjust, adapt and respond in a healthy, healing manner, many others sadly do not. When this occurs, we are here to help.
Your childhood may have impacted who you are as an adult; but, it does not have to define who you are as an adult. Connect with us today to learn more about how we can help.

“ Honestly the Bridge taught me something I already knew but had to remember. I am so damn special, valid, and important. Everyone in my life saw it, but me. The Bridge just showed me how to look in the mirror to see for myself. ”
