What Led to the Specialization of Trauma?
Debbie talks about being impacted by a world trip during which she visited India and being affected by the sight and existence of the extreme poverty all around.

Debbie shares the story of the first time she had to attend court as a witness for a child, one of her clients.
I love what I do and I think every child deserves a chance.
