Dan Taylor to Speak at March ScholarSip

Submitted by Jenny James Lee on March 1, 2016 - 12:44PM

Think about a recent trauma that someone has experienced: perhaps an unsettling or unresolved argument, a car accident, the loss of a job, or the passing of a loved one.

So what happens when young people experience trauma and how does this experience impact their lifelong health?
