Not interested in being with people s/he usually likes, since the injury
Why It Happens:
One way we cope with overwhelming scary experiences is to “shut down” our emotions and not feel close to other people for a while. Sometimes other people are reminders of what happened or of how things have changed.
Is This a Problem?:
Does your child seem to be having a really hard time feeling relaxed and close to friends and family s/he usually trusts and enjoys time with?
