I can't give too many details but am trying to discover how sudden trauma might affect a 9 year old.
If a child was previously boisterous but managing ok, they then experienced a one off traumatic event and suddenly their behaviour was so extreme that they were excluded permanently from school... What might the possible 'diagnosis' be?
What I mean is, a child with early trauma might have attachment difficulties etc, but what might 'possibilities' be with a child with sudden onset of difficulties? Some kind of post traumatic stress?
Does anyone out there have any expertise? Any suggested reading?
