The Trauma Informed Parent. Suzy DeYoung
Originally from New York City, Suzy began her career in television working as a production assistant and segment producer for a variety of programs including, Ryan’s Hope, Good Morning America, The CBS Morning Program and Live! Regis & Kathie Lee.
After the birth of her daughter, Suzy earned a Master’s of Education in Parent and Child Development from Bank Street College of Education in New York City.
Shortly after moving to Newtown, CT. in 2003, her middle child, seven at the time, suffered a severe and life threatening accident--a trauma that put everything else in their lives on hold for months.
Suzy says that While the treatment received for the physical injury was excellent, we were largely unprepared for the residual effects of the stored trauma which we would come to learn, endure on and off indefinitely; yet with the proper help can be substantially mitigated.
In 2007, Suzy launched Parenting With New Perspectives, a resource of guidance, support, and coaching for parents.
Suzy is a mother to three children: Quincy, 23; Cary, 19 and Barrett, 17.
