In 2008, our team of therapists had been treating PTSD among children for many years, and we realized that we had been waiting too long for stressed children to break down into symptoms and behaviors before intervening.

We partnered with the principal, teachers and staff of a local high school, committing ourselves to learning how to address trauma and stress in these students during the school day as problems emerged.

Together with the educators and teachers, we developed methods that worked without interfering with the flow of the school day or academic tasks.

We were then invited to provide services to an elementary school, and we worked with them to develop a “child-friendly” method of engaging them on potentially distressing topics. The Miss Kendra Program developed from this work.

It covers everything, it reaches everything, all those challenging conversations. It empowers the grown-ups to feel safe leading those conversations. It teaches skills. It does so in this playful, imaginary, imagination way. And I think it's really, really powerful.
