Beth Tyson is a therapist, trauma-responsive coach, and children's book author who specializes in helping kinship families, also known as "grandfamilies," cope with trauma and loss. She is also a public speaker, grandfamily advocate, and CASA volunteer in Delaware County, PA. She utilizes a trauma-responsive approach to help families and organizations begin the healing process after trauma.
There is no magic wand for helping children heal, but there are many strategies and tools we can use to stop the cycle of trauma from repeating itself. Trauma-responsive care is most effective when children, caregivers, and service providers understand how trauma and childhood adversity impacts the brain and autonomic nervous system. That is why Beth is passionate about educating caregivers and professionals on the biological impact of trauma. When we help one person learn the tools for overcoming trauma, we create a ripple effect in the rest of the world!
