Trauma and the Best Ways to Help the Victims: Dr. Deborah Rodriguez interview

By now you know the drill: it's Friday, and this is an audio podcast of our weekly video broadcast of "The Dr J Show."

She works with the Hopeful Hearts Ministry and the Maria Goretti Network, and she's a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect.

  • Realize that trauma/abuse exist and is very common
  • Recognize the signs of trauma
  • Respond in a trauma-informed way (using the VEEL approach)
  • Avoid re-traumatization
  • Consider setting up a trauma-informed church/school/family to create a safe place for survivors to begin to heal
