Adolescents and Trauma: Dr. Marti Straus Speaks to the Issues

Martha Straus, PhD, professor in the department of Clinical Psychology, recently appeared on BCTV, the Brattleboro VT cable channel, to discuss how parents can avoid over-reacting or disengaging from their teenager’s very normal desire to test limits, question authority, argue about norms and values, and insist on learning life’s lessons the hard way. The interview, part of the Brattleboro Retreat’s “Keep Talking” series, precedes her continuing education workshop at the Brattleboro Retreat on June 8 on treating traumatized teens.
