Trauma Tip:

Our brains are predisposed to notice and attend to negative stimuli first. Futhermore, every novel stimulus is deemed a "threat" until the brain can deem it otherwise by comparing it to previous templates created by past experiences. Additionally, continued exposure to violent content desensitizes the brain making it less likely to respond appropriately when it experiences a similar stimulus in the future. In light of this information the recommendation is that you and or your kids reduce your intake of negative, violent, trauma inducing sensationalized content via the television or internet.
