Oprah discusses Childhood Trauma and the Power of Relationships

March 6, 2018

In a preview of a great new segment on 60 Minutes, Oprah discusses the role childhood trauma plays on children’s lives, and how important it is as adults and as organizations to be able to consider it. She says her own school has gone from a model of asking “What’s wrong with you?” to asking “What happened to you?”, and discusses how children raised in chaotic environments need caring relationships to build necessary resilience. This clip is a must-watch for any organization working with traumatized youth, but especially mentoring organizations. The power of relationships cannot be doubted.
