Digital Diaries: Samantha

NCTSN Resource

Resource Description

Features Samantha, a high school student, and her trauma therapist, Dr. Ernestine Briggs-King. Samantha is a composite of several young women, not an actual client, and is portrayed by an actress in order to protect privacy. During the webinar, you learn about Samantha’s challenges and struggles, but also her triumphs as she navigates through her traumatic experiences. In a unique approach, Dr. Briggs-King encourages Samantha to complete diary entries, not in the traditional paper and pencil way, but electronically. This affords us the opportunity to be with Samantha as she processes these experiences and discovers incredible strengths she is able to tap into.
