Trauma’s Tragedy and Treatment is a five-part series that explores how childhood trauma can impact a person for decades to come. The series delves into how Newark is trying to become a trauma-informed city by 2020.

In this third installment, correspondent Michael Hill explores how death is a pervasive adverse childhood experience (ACE) that afflicts families. However, there are organizations that help families cope with loss. The story introduces Imagine, a Newark-based organization that provides grief education for children, young adults and families, and how it navigates the tricky topic of death.
