Childhood Trauma

Choose one of the first three core concepts (see attachment) and apply it to the memoir by Jeanette Walls, The Glass Castle.
How would an understanding of the Core Concept you chose influence your understanding of this experience for Jeanette and her family at this moment in time? What facts about the family do you know? What assumptions might you make and why? What might you want to learn from the family members and/or other respondents (teachers, medical professionals, other) to confirm or deny your assumptions (hypotheses)? What might be important concepts about trauma to understand in order to be most helpful, and what would you want to research in the ESC online library to better your understanding of the family’s experience? (ex. child development for a specific age group? Working with the precautious child? Issues in neglect and child welfare initiatives? Etc.).
