National Opioid Crisis Expert, Dynamic Speaker And Author, Dr. John Rosa Writes About The Trauma Young Children Are Exposed To That Often Leads To Negative Behaviors And Later Drug Use And Abuse.

Dr. John P. Rosa, opioid crisis expert, author and dynamic speaker discusses the events that occurred in 2020 that may impact developing children in much the same way that soldiers who have been to war are emotionally impacted.

ROCKVILLE, MD. February 15, 2021: Dr. John Rosa, dynamic speaker, national opioid crises expert, and co-author of The Recipe for Success with Jack Canfield, posted a new blog on his website entitled, Children Are At Risk Of Being As Emotionally Damaged As Soldiers Returning From War.”  Dr. Rosa makes a plea to doctors and other adults who spend time with children to pay close attention to their behavior.

Dr. John P. Rosa Dr. Rosa states, “You may think the title of this piece sounds ludicrous.” He adds, “Let me explain.” Dr. Rosa writes, “Children between the ages of 6 and 17 years of age are in a state of constant neurological development. They can easily be negatively impacted by severe trauma or repetitive micro traumas.” He continues, “If you take into consideration the events of 2020 alone, without having a clue what is going to unfold this year, you may quickly understand.”

“For starters,” says Dr. Rosa, “the year began with an invisible monster in the form of the COVID-19 virus. Following that, the civil unrest and political upheaval that occurred was deeply disturbing. The west coast of the U.S. was on fire and the gulf coast was under water.” According to Dr. Rosa, “These events were enough to wreak havoc on the most solid adult, let alone children who are not equipped to understand or make sense of the world around them.”
