Students who have experienced school and campus shootings, survivors of sexual assault, and veterans returning from military combat have at least one thing in common: exposure to trauma. Students who have been exposed to trauma are at an increased risk for academic, social, and emotional problems and may also experience anxiety, depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Some studies even show a correlation between trauma exposure and lower GPA, higher number of absences from school, and lower high school graduation rates. Not surprisingly, experts regard trauma exposure in youth as a major public health concern. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is diagnosed when an individual has experienced, witnessed, or been confronted with a traumatic event where they were exposed to actual or threatened death, serious injury, or sexual violati on. Given that previous trauma is a risk factor for future trauma, survivors of school and campus shootings, military combat, and sexual assault must be offered early intervention and resources to reduce the risk of subsequent trauma.
