Futures Without Violence’s Changing Minds Campaign


New research shows that witnessing traumatic events, like domestic violence, shootings, or even fighting, can impact the physical development of a child’s brain — potentially leading to lifelong health and social issues. But you can help reverse the effects. The Changing Minds website, developed by Futures Without Violence, will teach you about the science of childhood trauma, and how five everyday gestures can make a world of difference.
