I am working at a summer camp with kids 6-13 years old with various attachment disorders, trauma, and ADHD. I know very little about ADHD, so I may be far off... but, I wonder if the hyperactivity, inability to focus, and aggression is a product of their trauma. In the show, he gave an example of how stress produces energy to get through the circumstance. Perhaps these children's own stress has created an huge amount of hyperactivity???? Sometimes, they appear vacant... as if they are not in their mind and cannot control their body. I don't know? ... just a thought. I'm still young in my career. I have also worked with victims/ survivors of sexual abuse. Similarly, the body and mind are disconnected. I love how he says, "You have to own your body." Great show!
