It is not always easy to come up with a solution to what trauma affects a child. But, here are some ideas: therapy(I especially like the Talk Therapist); more physical activity; more academic work; art classes, music classes. And there are all kinds of City programs in YOUR city I am sure. I believe if a child has a lot of anger it would be best if they got involved with martial arts.
