Inland Journal, June 22, 2017

This week on Inland Journal, some children have a lot of adversity thrown at them early, before they’re able to adequately handle it. Psychologists call those adverse childhood experiences and say the more difficulties children must overcome, the more likely they’ll have trouble later on in life. We’ll talk with Washington State University researcher Chris Blodgett about work he’s doing with schools to help students with behavior issues tied to the trauma they’ve experienced.
