Trauma Informed Care through Project CHANGE Renews Teen's Hopes

Oliver* was referred to Project CHANGE by a counselor in his school, he is 15 years-old. When we first met him, he reported having visual and auditory hallucinations and was experiencing insomnia due to intense nightmares. In our assessment, we identified the nightmares were a response to the trauma he experienced when he and his mother were kidnapped by a criminal organization for 16 days after a failed attempt to emigrate their home in Honduras. After another attempt, Oliver and his mother were able to cross the US border.
